Vaughan Lee will make his first Octagon appearance at flyweight when he locks horns with Patrick Holohan at UFC Fight Night “Bisping vs. Leites.”
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Tuesday. UFC Fight Night takes place at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow and is headlined by a middleweight confrontation between Michael Bisping and Thales Leites.
Lee faced tough sledding at 135 pounds in the Octagon, dropping bouts to Chris Cariaso, T.J. Dillashaw, Raphael Assuncao and Iuri Alcantara. His most recent outing was a 25-second knockout loss to Alcantara at UFC Fight Night “Munoz vs. Mousasi.”
Holohan, meanwhile, is 2-1 with the Las Vegas-based promotion. The 27-year-old Dublin native last appeared at UFC Fight Night in Boston, where he captured a unanimous decision triumph against Shane Howell.
