Cage Fury Fighting Championships welterweight titlist Jonavin Webb has signed with the UFC and will make his Octagon debut against Kyle Noke on May 10.
The promotion has not formally announced the matchup, but the bout has been added to the UFC Fight Night “Miocic vs. Hunt” event page on UFC.com. Noke was originally scheduled to face Andreas Stahl in a featured 170-pound scrap.
UFC Fight Night takes place at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre in Adelaide, Australia, and is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Stipe Miocic and Mark Hunt.
The 25-year-old Webb has competed exclusively for CFFC since beginning his pro career in 2012. “Spyder” has amassed an 8-0 record during that time, finishing six of his victims inside the distance. Prior to signing with the UFC, Webb was scheduled to face Lyman Good at CFFC 48 in a rematch of their controversial November bout that ended in a no contest.
Various injuries have limited Noke to just one Octagon appearance since 2012. In his last outing, the Australian dropped a unanimous decision to Patrick Cote at UFC Fight Night “Bisping vs. Kennedy.” Noke is 4-3 in the UFC since emerging from Season 11 of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
