Steven Ray will get a chance to compete on home soil when he faces Paul Felder at UFC Fight Night 113 in Scotland.
The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the lightweight pairing on Friday. UFC Fight Night 113 takes place at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow on July 16. The evening’s main card airs on Fox Sports 1, but a headliner for the event has not yet been revealed.
Ray, 27, has been victorious in five of his first six Octagon appearances. Most recently, “Braveheart” garnered a majority decision triumph against Joe Lauzon at UFC Fight Night 108 on April 22. The Cage Warriors Fighting Championship veteran owns a 21-6 career mark, with 14 victories coming inside the distance.
Felder, meanwhile, has won three of his last four promotional appearances. In his last outing, “The Irish Dragon” scored a first-round technical knockout victory against Alessandro Ricci on Feb. 19. The 32-year-old Philadelphia native is 5-3 in the UFC and 13-3 as a professional overall.
