Aljamain Sterling’s return to the Octagon is set for April 15, when he takes on Brazilian grappler Augusto Mendes in a bantamweight bout at UFC on FOX 24 in Kansas City. MMA Fighting confirmed the bout with sources close to the situation.
Sterling (12-2) is looking to bounce back from consecutive decision losses to Bryan Caraway and Raphael Assuncao, snapping his 12-fight unbeaten streak.
Mendes (6-1), no the other hand, scored his first UFC win with a ‘Fight of the Night’ against Frankie Saenz last January.
UFC on FOX 24 will be headlined by flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson against Wilson Reis.
