A lightweight clash between prospects Jake Matthews and Johnny Case has been added to the UFC Fight Night Brisbane lineup.
Promotion officials confirmed the pairing on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night takes place at the Brisbane Entertainment Center in Brisbane, Australia, and is headlined by a heavyweight tilt between Mark Hunt and Frank Mir. The card will air in the United States on Fox Sports 1.
Matthews, 21, is 3-1 in the Octagon and 9-1 as a professional overall. “The Celtic Kid” last competed at UFC 193, where he earned a second-round doctor stoppage triumph against Akbarh Arreola. All but one of Matthews’ wins have come inside the distance.
The 26-year-old Case has a more extensive 22-4 pro mark and is unbeaten in four UFC appearances. Most recently, he outpointed Yan Cabral at UFC Fight Night “Belfort vs. Henderson 3” on Nov. 7.
