A bantamweight clash pitting Anderson dos Santos against Jack Shore has been targeted for the UFC’s “Fight Island” card on July 15.
Combate was first to report the booking. The card takes place at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi and is headlined by a featherweight tilt between Calvin Kattar and Dan Ige. Broadcast plans for the event have not been revealed.
Dos Santos is still looking for his first promotional triumph after losing decisions to Andre Ewell and Nad Narimani in his first two UFC appearances. The 34-year-old Sao Paulo native owns a 20-8 professional record and has finished 16 of those wins inside the distance.
A former Cage Warriors champion, Shore submitted Nohelin Hernandez in the third round of his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 160 this past September. The 25-year-old Welshman is 12-0 thus far in his professional tenure, with all but one of his victories coming by knockout, technical knockout or submission.
