A bout between two light heavyweight up-and-comers has been added to the UFC 199 fight card. UFC officials recently announced that undefeated fighters Jonathan Wilson and Luiz Henrique da Silva will meet on the June 4 event.
Wilson (7-0) made a statement in his promotional debut, knocking out Chris Dempsey in just 50 seconds at UFC Fight Night 73. He hopes to extend his unbeaten streak and build off his previous win.
Henrique da Silva (10-0) will be making his Octagon debut at UFC 199. Nine of his ten wins have been by knockout. The Brazilian has never gone the distance and doesn’t plan to when he meets Wilson in June.
UFC 199: Rockhold vs. Weidman 2 takes place on June 4 at The Forum in Inglewood, California. The pay-per-view event is headlined by a rematch between former middleweight champion Chris Weidman and the man that took his crown, Luke Rockhold.
