UFC welterweight Max Griffin has his next fight set, and it will take place this November.

Griffin has been paired up with Ramiz Brahimaj. The bout is expected to take place on the UFC’s November 7 card, which does not yet have an official location. Cageside Press confirmed the booking with a source familiar with the situation, following an initial report by MMA DNA,

Griffin (15-8) will be looking to shake off back-to-back losses when he enters the cage against Brahimaj. Max “Pain” has dropped his last two fights to Alex Morono and and Alex “Cowboy” Oliveira, after picking up a win over Zelim Imadaev.

During his time fighting in the octagon, Griffin has faced off with the likes of title challengers Colby Covington and Thiago Alves, and picked up a win over ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry.

Brahimaj (8-2) has not set foot in the octagon despite signing with the promotion in 2019, and has had two bouts fall through since inking his deal with the company. The latest, in June against Takashi Sato, was scrapped when one of Brahimaj’s cornermen tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, he gets Griffin in his promotional debut.

The UFC’s November 7 card currently include the following reported bouts:

Brendan Allen vs. Ian Heinisch
Vanessa Melo vs. Sarah Moras
Kyle Daukaus vs. Dustin Stoltzfus
Dustin Jacoby vs. Justin Ledet
Trevin Giles vs. Bevon Lewis
Felipe Colares vs. Gustavo Lopez
Ramiz Brahimaj vs. Max Griffin
