A bantamweight clash pitting Douglas Silva de Andrade against Movsar Evloev has been added to the UFC 248 lineup.
The promotion announced the pairing through its social media channels. UFC 248 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on March 7 and is headlined by a middleweight championship tilt between Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero.
Andrade competed just once in 2019, taking a unanimous decision over former bantamweight champ Renan Barao at UFC Fight Night 164 on Nov. 16. The 34-year-old Brazilian is 5-3 in UFC competition and 26-3 with one no contest as a professional overall.
A 25-year-old native of Russia, Evloev is undefeated in 12 professional outings. The M-1 Challenge veteran has kicked off his UFC tenure with consecutive decision triumphs over Seung Woo Choi and Enrique Barzola.
