The lineup for UFC on FOX 27 is set.
A featherweight bout between Octagon newcomers Austin Arnett and Cory Sandhagen was officially added on Monday, bringing the amount of fights on Saturday’s show in Charlotte, N.C., to 11.
Arnett (15-3) was most recently seen losing a unanimous decision to Brandon Davis on the Aug. 1 episode of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, a fight that earned Davis a UFC contract. The competitive contest kept Arnett on the UFC’s radar and now he looks to get back on the winning track. Prior to losing to Davis, the 26-year-old Arnett had won 13 consecutive contests, with 10 of those victories ending by way of knockout or submission.
Competing for the second time in eight days, Sandhagen (8-1) looks to capitalize on a 61-second win over Diaz brothers associate Jose Aguayo. The two met on the main card of Legacy Fighting Alliance 31 last Friday, with Sandhagen picking up a quick TKO win.
UFC on FOX 27 will be headlined by a rematch between former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo Souza and Derek Brunson.
