Hakeem Dawodu will lock horns with Michael Trizano at a UFC Fight Night event on Feb. 5.
MMA DNA was first to report the featherweight tilt. The card does not yet have an official location or headliner.
Dawodu had a five-bout winning streak snapped in a unanimous decision loss to Movsar Evloev at UFC 263 this past June. The 30-year-old Canadian enjoyed a 7-0-1 tenure with World Series of Fighting before signing with the UFC.
The winner of Season 27 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Trizano is 3-1 thus far in UFC competition. Most recently, the Team Tiger Schulmann representative outpointed Ludovit Klein at UFC on ESPN 24 on May 8.
