UFC 284 added Shane Young and Blake Bilder


Shane Young will give Blake Bilder an unwelcome welcome at the UFC.

MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck confirmed with sources with knowledge of the matchup that Young (13-6) is set to fight the undefeated Bilder (7-0-1) in a featherweight bout at UFC 284 in Perth, Australia, on Feb. 12.

Young will be fighting in his first fight since losing to Omar Morales, UFC 260 March 2021.. After consecutive wins over Rolando Dy and Austin Arnett, the New Zealander native lost his last two fights. Young’s UFC record currently stands at 2-3.

After an outstanding performance against Alex Morgan in Dana White s Contender series last August,

Bilder made his UFC debut. “El Animal” defeated Morgan by first-round submission to earn a UFC contract. He has yet to lose since making his pro debut in 2018 and is currently on a five-fight win streak.

UFC 284 will feature a champion-vs.-champion fight, as Islam Makhachev (recently crowned lightweight king) takes on Alexander Volkanovski (featherweight titleholder).
