Matt Brown will meet Dhiego Lima at an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on June 19.
MMAFighting.com was first to report the pairing. The UFC Fight Night event doesn’t have an official location or headliner at this time.
The 40-year-old Brown has lost five of his last seven promotional appearances. Most recently, “The Immortal” dropped a three-round verdict against Carlos Condit at UFC on ABC 1 on Jan. 16. Brown has earned wins over the likes of Stephen Thompson, Mike Swick, Mike Pyle, Tim Means, Diego Sanchez and Ben Saunders during a lengthy UFC tenure.
Lima, meanwhile, is coming off a clear-cut decision loss to Belal Muhammad at UFC 258 on Feb 13. Prior to that defeat, “The Ultimate Fighter 19” finalist had won three straight Octagon appearances, besting Chad Laprise, Court McGee and Luke Jumeau in succession.
