Michel Pereira and Kalinn Williams will square off in a potentially entertaining welterweight clash at UFC Fight Night 184 on Dec. 19.
ESPN was first to report the matchup. UFC Fight Night takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a welterweight scrap between Leon Edwards and Khamzat Chimaev.
Pereira halted a two-bout skid at UFC Fight Night 176, when he submitted Zelim Imadaev in the third round of their Sept. 5 encounter. Known as on of the promotion’s flashiest performers, “Demolidor” is 2-2 in UFC competition, with his other triumph coming via first-round KO against Danny Roberts.
The 26-year-old Williams has made a splash in the beginning of his promotional tenure. After knocking out Alex Morono in 27 seconds in his Octagon debut at UFC 247, “Khaos the Oxfighter” stopped Abdul Razak Alhassan in 30 seconds at UFC Fight Night 182 on Nov. 14. Williams has won his last eight fights as a professional.
