Khalil Rountree will square off against Daniel Jolly in a light heavyweight duel at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston on Feb. 4.
The promotion announced the pairing on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night 104 takes place at the Toyota Center and is headlined by a featherweight tilt pitting Dennis Bermudez against Chan Sung Jung.
A finalist on “The Ultimate Fighter 23," Rountree is looking for his first Octagon triumph after falling to Andrew Sanchez and Tyson Pedro in his first two UFC appearances. “The War Horse” was victorious in his first four pro outings, all under the Resurrection Fighting Alliance banner.
Jolly, meanwhile, suffered his first career defeat at UFC Fight Night 74, as he was knocked out in the opening stanza by Misha Cirkunov. The Austin, Texas, native won his first five professional appearances on the regional circuit.
