Artem Lobov will lock horns with Andre Fili in a featherweight tilt at UFC Fight Night 118.
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Friday. UFC Fight Night 118 takes place in Gdansk, Poland, on Oct. 21 and will stream on UFC Fight Pass. A headliner has not been announced for the event.
Lobov had a two-fight winning streak halted in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 108, as he lost a five-round verdict to Cub Swanson in the evening’s headliner on April 22. However, the SBG Ireland representative gained a measure of respect by going the distance with a top featherweight contender in an entertaining battle.
A member of Team Alpha Male, Fili has alternated wins and losses through his first eight Octagon appearances. Most recently, he suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Calvin Kattar at UFC 214 on July 29.
