A bantamweight matchup pitting Miles Johns against Kevin Natividad has been added to the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Halloween card.
MMAjunkie.com was first to report the booking. The UFC Fight Night card takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a middleweight duel between Anderson Silva and Uriah Hall.
Johns received a UFC contract following a decision triumph over Richie Santiago on Season 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series. He then debuted in the Octagon with a split verdict against Cole Smith before suffering a second-round TKO defeat to Mario Bautista at UFC 247. The 26-year-old Fortis MMA product is 10-1 over the course of his professional career.
Anchored at Arizona Combat Sports, Natividad was slated to make his Octagon debut against Brian Kelleher on Sept. 5 before a positive COVID-19 test removed him from the bout. “Quicksand” is currently on a five-bout winning streak that includes four triumphs under the Legacy Fighting Alliance banner.
