A lightweight clash pitting Michael Chiesa against Kevin Lee will serve as the headliner for UFC Fight Night 112 in Oklahoma City.
The promotion announced the matchup on Thursday. UFC Fight Night 112 takes place on June 25 at Chesapeake Energy Arena and also includes a featherweight duel between B.J. Penn and Dennis Siver. The main card will be televised on Fox Sports 1.
Chiesa, 29, enters the bout on a three-fight winning streak. “Maverick” last competed at UFC on Fox 19 in April 2016, when he submitted Beneil Dariush in the second stanza. “The Ultimate Fighter 15” winner is 7-2 during his promotional tenure overall.
Lee, meanwhile, has reeled off four consecutive triumphs since falling to Leonardo Santos at UFC 194. That streak includes finishes of Francisco Trinaldo, Magomed Mustafaev and Jake Matthews. The 24-year-old “Motown Phenom” is 8-2 over the course of his UFC career.
