Lightweights are set to battle during the UFC’s July visit to the Lone Star State.
Multiple sources with information about the promotions confirmed that MMA Fighting will host a Diego Ferreira vs Drakkar Klose matchup at UFC 277. Ariel Helwani was first to report the booking.
Although the UFC has not yet announced a venue for the fight, multiple sources with information tell MMA Fighting the event will be held in Dallas on July 30..
Ferreira looks to snap a three-fight skid, the longest such streak of his career. The 37-year-old dropped an entertaining split decision to Beneil Dariush in February 2021, before getting stopped in consecutive fights by Gregor Gillespie and Mateusz Gamrot.
After recovering from injuries sustained in a Jeremy Stephens push ahead of UFC Vegas 24., Klose was able to return to the Octagon in April. Klose faced Brandon Jenkins in UFC Vegas 51. He won his second promotional round and was awarded his fourth win in five fights.
UFC 277 will feature an interim title fight between Kai Kara-France and Brandon Moreno.
