Leo Kuntz will make his initial UFC foray when he meets Yosdenis Cedeno at UFC Fight Night in Atlantic City, N.J.
Promotion officials announced the lightweight bout on Wednesday. UFC Fight Night "Cerrone vs. Miller" takes place at the Revel Casino Hotel on July 16 and is headlined by a 155-pound tussle between Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller.
A native of Linton, N.D., Kuntz has lost just once in 19 professional outings. He briefly appeared on “The Ultimate Fighter 16,” falling to Sam Alvey in a preliminary contest. “The Lion” has finished 12 of his 17 triumphs by knockout or submission.
Cedeno, meanwhile, had a six-fight winning streak snapped by Ernest Chavez in his promotional debut at UFC 170. The 29-year-old Cuban is a former Championship Fighting Alliance titlist who owns six of his 9 career triumphs by way of knockout or technical knockout.
