A welterweight clash between Jake Matthews and Jeremiah Wells has been added to the UFC on ESPN 31 lineup.
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Tuesday. UFC on ESPN 31 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Dec. 4 and is headlined by a bantamweight duel between Jose Aldo and Rob Font.
Matthews had a three-fight winning streak snapped in his last outing, as he was submitted by Sean Brady in the third round at UFC 259 on March 6. Still just 27 years old, Matthews has compiled a 10-5 mark in the Las Vegas-based promotion since his 2014 debut.
A veteran of the CES MMA and Cage Fury Fighting Championships organizations, Wells made a splash in his Octagon debut with a second-round knockout of Warlley Alves at UFC Fight Night 190. The Renzo Gracie Philly representative is 9-2-1 over the course of his pro career.
