Former Titan Fighting Championship and Cage Warriors Fighting Championship titlist Brett Johns will make his Octagon debut against Kwan Ho Kwak at UFC Fight Night in Belfast (online betting) on Nov. 19.
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night takes place at the SSE Arena and is headlined by a rematch between Uriah Hall and Gegard Mousasi. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
Johns, 24, is unbeaten in 12 outings since beginning his professional career in 2012. In his last appearance, he took a five-round split decision over Anthony Gutierrez at Titan FC 34. However, Johns was stripped of his 135-pound title for missing weight prior to the bout.
A native of Seoul, South Korea, Kwak will enter his first promotional foray with a 9-0 mark. The Korean Top Team representative captured gold in both the Pacific Xtreme Combat and Top Fighting Championship promotions. Kwak owns a notable victory over ex-UFC talent Alptekin Ozkilic.
