Kyle Daukaus will meet Aliaskhab Khizriev in a middleweight bout at UFC Fight Night on April 10.
Promotion officials recently announced the pairing through social media. UFC Fight Night takes place at an as yet to be confirmed location and is headlined by a 185-pound showdown between Darren Till and Marvin Vettori.
After suffering his first professional defeat to Brendan Allen at UFC on ESPN 12, Daukaus rebounded in his sophomore promotional outing, outpointing Dustin Stoltzfus at UFC 255 this past November. The former Cage Fury Fighting Championships titlist owns a 10-1 career mark that also includes a victory on Season 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series.
Khizriev will make his UFC debut with a 13-0 record. He earned a contract with the Las Vegas-based promotion by submitting Henrique Shiguemoto in 50 seconds on the Contender Series this past September. He owns other notable wins against Rousimar Palhares and Yasubey Enomoto under the Fight Nights Global banner.
