Jun Yong Park faces Tafon Nchukwi on May 8th. The Korean middleweight will be looking to make it three wins in a row at the as yet untitled event which is likely to take place in Las Vegas.
Park (12-4) is coming off a decision win over John Phillips at UFC Fight Island 6 last year. He also outpointed Marc-André Barriault at UFC Busan in 2019.
Nchukwi (5-0) earned his spot on the roster with an impressive win at Dana White’s Contender Series. The Cameroonian scored a decision win over Jamie Pickett on his promotional debut at UFC Vegas 17.
The May 8th event will be headlined by a welterweight bout between two UFC veterans. Donald Cerrone (36-15) has been on the roster since 2011 while Diego Sanchez (30-13) signed after winning the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter in 2005.
The event will also feature former bantamweight champion Holly Holm (14-5). The 39 year old has been matched with TUF 18 winner Julianna Peña (10-4)
