A pair of UFC lightweights will be looking to get back in the win column at UFC 260.
First reported by MMA Fighting, Khama Worthy and Jamie Mullarkey will fight at the PPV event, which takes March 27, 2021. Both fighters had previously revealed they had fights pending.
Worthy (16-7) will try and get back the momentum he had before his most recent loss. Worthy burst onto the scene in 2019 by picking up one of the biggest upsets of the year, knocking out Devonte Smith at UFC 241. He kicked off his year in 2020 with another UFC win against Luis Pena via submission. “The Deathstar” unfortunately has his seven-fight win streak snapped when he lost via knockout in the first round to Ottman Azaitar in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill in September.
Australia’s Mullarkey is still looking for his first UFC win. Mullarkey made his UFC debut in 2019 after going on a four-fight win streak on the regional scene. He lost to Brad Riddell, who was also making his debut, via unanimous decision. Mullarkey’s second UFC fight would take place a year later against Fares Ziam on ‘Fight Island.’ Ziam would win a very questionable unanimous decision.
Both fighters need a win to keep pace in an absolutely stacked 155lb division.
