The UFC’s February 20, 2021 card has added some lightweight action in the form of Drakkar Klose vs. Jai Herbert.

First reported by MMA Junkie, the 155lb showdown will see both fighters looking to rebound from recent losses.

Klose (11-2-1), a Michigan native, had a three-fight win streak snapped by Beneil Dariush at UFC 248 back in March. The final PPV prior to the pandemic saw Dariush put Klose away via knockout in the second round.

Prior to that loss, Klose had won bouts over Lando Vannata, Bobby Green, and Christos Giagos.

Jai Herbert (10-2) had a six fight win streak snapped when he made his octagon debut back in July on Fight Island. Herbert, a former Cage Warriors lightweight champ, came up short against Francisco Trinaldo. The Brazilian knocked out Herbert in the third round.

He’ll be looking for his first UFC win against Klose as a result.

The UFC has not yet officially announced the location for any of its 2021 cards. All signs point to a return to Fight Island early in the year, however.

In addition to Klose vs. Herbert, also reported for the UFC’s February 20, 2021 event are the following bouts:

Danny Chavez vs. Jared Gordon
Shana Dobson vs. Casey O’Neill
Chris Daukaus vs. Aleksei Oleinik
