Court McGee will square off against Claudio Silva in a welterweight duel at UFC Fight Night 188 on May 22.
AgFight was first to report the booking. UFC Fight Night 188 takes place at an as yet to be announced location and is headlined by a bantamweight showdown pitting Cody Garbrandt against Rob Font.
McGee, 36, has lost five of his last six Octagon appearances dating back to January 2017. Most recently, “The Ultimate Fighter 11” winner dropped a three-round verdict against Carlos Condit at UFC on ESPN 16 this past October.
The 38-year-old Silva began his promotional tenure with five consecutive triumphs before falling to James Krause via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 180 on Oct. 17. The loss to Krause was just the second in 16 professional appearances for the London Shootfighters representative.
