Aoriqileng will be back in action on April 23rd. The Chinese flyweight has been matched with Cameron Else at a UFC event which doesn’t currently have a name or location.
Aoriqileng (19-11) has lost both of his UFC fights by decision. But having been the distance twice he will feel he is not far off the level required to compete in the octagon.
Last time out the 28 year old dropped a decision to Cody Durden at UFC Vegas 43. He picked up a $50,000 USD bonus on his promotional debut after coming off second best to Jeff Molina in a thrilling fight at UFC 261.
Else (10-5) also lost on his UFC debut. The Englishman will be looking for his first win inside the octagon and has only been the distance once in his 15 fights.
The card will also feature veteran Clay Guida (37-21). The 40 year old, who has been on the roster since 2006, faces Claudio Puelles in a lightweight fight.
