Two new contests have been added to the UFC Fight Night 129 lineup, as Dominick Reyes will square off against Jared Cannonier at light heavyweight, while Enrique Briones will lock horns with Frankie Saenz at bantamweight.
The promotion recently confirmed the matchups. UFC Fight Night 129 takes place at Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile, on May 19, marking the Las Vegas-based organization’s first trip to a South American country outside of Brazil. A headliner for the card has not yet been announced.
Reyes is unbeaten in eight pro outings, including first-round finishes of Jeremy Kimball and Joachim Christensen in his first two UFC appearances. Cannonier went 1-2 in the Octagon in 2017 and is coming off a decision loss to Jan Blachowicz at UFC on Fox 26.
After beginning his UFC tenure with a win against Guido Cannetti, the 37-year-old Briones has dropped three consecutive bouts. Saenz, also 37, halted a three-fight skid with a split decision over Merab Dvalishvili on Dec. 9.
