A pair of UFC featherweights will collide in May when Bill Algeo takes on Brazil’s Ricardo Ramos.

First reported by MMA Junkie, Algeo and Ramos will fight on May 22 at UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt. The pair of fighters were booked for April 17 but due to COVID-19 protocols, the fight was cancelled. Both fighters would confirm the news on their Instagram Story.

Ramos (14-3) was supposed to fight last week at UFC Vegas 21, but the UFC could not find a replacement after his opponent fell out of the fight. The Brazilian was recently finished by Lerone Murphy at UFC Fight Island 1 in July 2020, which snapped his two-fight win streak. He had previously defeated Journey Newson and Luiz Eduardo Garagorri – the latter earned him a Performance of the Night bonus.

Algeo (14-5) has thoroughly impressed in his first two UFC fights. He went to war with Ricardo Lamas at UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Rakić, which earned them Fight of the Night; Algeo would lose the unanimous decision. “Senor Perfecto” would rebound three months later by dominating Spike Carlyle, giving him his walking papers, and sending him out of the UFC.

UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt is expected to occur at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and will most likely be broadcast on ESPN+.

With the latest addition, the May 22 fight card now looks like this:

  • Cody Garbrandt vs. Rob Font
  • Felicia Spencer vs. Danyelle Wolf
  • Xionan Yan vs. Carla Esparza
  • David Dvorak vs. Raulian Paiva
  • Denys Bondar vs. Victor Rodriguez
  • Rodrigo Nascimento vs. Alan Baudot
  • Justin Tafa vs. Jared Vanderaa
  • Josh Culibao vs. Yilan Sha
  • Sarah Alpar vs. Stephanie Egger
  • Yancy Medeiros vs. Damir Hadzovic
  • Bill Algeo vs. Ricardo Ramos
