A featherweight clash pitting Andre Fili against Daniel Pineda has been added to the UFC Fight Night 190 lineup.
BJPenn.com was first to report the booking. UFC Fight Night 190 takes place on June 26 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a heavyweight showdown between Ciryl Gane and Alexander Volkov. The card airs in its entirety on ESPN+ beginning at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.
Fili has lost two of his last three promotional appearances and is coming off a decision defeat at the hands of Bryce Mitchell at UFC Fight Night 181 last October. The Team Alpha Male product is 9-6 over the course of his promotional tenure and 21-8 as a professional overall.
Pineda returned for a second stint in the Octagon last August, when he stopped Herbert Burns via TKO in the second round of their bout at UFC 252. In his last outing, “The Pit” suffered a second-round KO loss to Cub Swanson at UFC 256.
