Paul Felder will meet Gilbert Burns in a lightweight bout at UFC 208 on Feb. 11, promotion officials recently announced.
UFC 208 takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will see Holly Holm face Germaine de Randamie for the promotion’s inaugural women’s featherweight championship. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view.
Felder saw a two-fight winning streak come to an end in his most recent outing, as he suffered a third-round TKO defeat against Francisco Trinaldo at UFC Fight Night 95 on Sept. 24. “The Irish Dragon” is 4-3 during his Octagon tenure and 12-3 as a professional overall.
Burns, meanwhile, is coming off a decision loss to Michel Prazeres at UFC Fight Night 95. Prior to that, the Brazilian known as “Durinho” had been victorious in four of his first five promotional appearances, with three of those triumphs coming by way of submission.
