T.J. Brown vs. Gabriel Benitez, Caio Borralho vs. Jamie Pickett Set for UFC Card on Jan. 15



The UFC Fight Night lineup on Jan. 15 appears to be nearly complete with the addition of two new bouts.

T.J. Brown will square off against Gabriel Benitez at featherweight, while Caio Borralho will meet Jamie Pickett at middleweight at the event, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a 145-pound clash between Calvin Kattar and Giga Chikadze. Brown vs. Benitez was announced by Iridium Sports Agency, while MMAFighting.com initially reported Borralho vs. Pickett. Borralho was supposed to step in against Dustin Stoltzfus at UFC Fight Night 199 on Dec. 18, but he was unable to compete on that show due ot visa issues.

Brown lost his first two UFC bouts after appearing on Season 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series. In his most recent outing, the Glory MMA & Fitness representative secured his first promotional triumph, a split decision over Kai Kamaka III at UFC on ESPN 23.

Benitez has lost three of his last four Octagon appearances, including a third-round TKO defeat at the hands of Billy Quarantillo in his last bout at UFC on ESPN 26. “Moggly” is 6-5 during his tenure witht the Las Vegas-based organization.

Borralho earned a pair of victories on the Contender Series in 2021. He was not awarded a UFC contract after outpointed Aaron Jeffrey on Sept. 28, but he impressed Dana White when he stopped Jesse Murray in the opening stanza of their Oct. 19 encounter. The 28-year-old Brazilian is 10-1 with one no contest over the course of a professional tenure that began in 2014.

Also a Contender Series alum, Pickett earned his first promotional win in three tries at UFC Fight Night 196, where he outpointed Laureano Staropoli on Oct. 23. Prior to that, “The Nightwolf” had fallen to Tafon Nchukwi and Jordan Wright in UFC competition.
