A pair of UFC welterweights will be looking to get back into the win column this August.

MMA Junkie was the first to report the news that Ramiz Brahimaj will fight Sasha Palatnikov on August 21 at a yet-to-be-announced UFC event. Both fighters would confirm the news on social media following the report.

Brahimaj (8-3) was unsuccessful in his UFC debut when he suffered one of the most gruesome injuries you’ll ever see. He lost via doctor stoppage when his opponent Max Griffin hit him with an elbow that severed his ear. The Fortis MMA fighter bypassed Dana White’s Contender Series.

Palatnikov (6-3) had his two-fight win streak snapped when Impa Kasanganay finished him at UFC on ABC 2 in April. Before the loss, he upset Louis Cosce by surviving the first-round onslaught and then defeating him via third-round TKO. He was a heavy underdog at +455.

No location, venue, or broadcast details have been announced by the promotion for UFC’s August 21 event. No main event has been announced as of yet.

So far, the August 21 fight card looks like this:

  • Paulo Costa vs. Jared Cannonier
  • Alexandre Pantoja vs. Brandon Royval
  • Clay Guida vs. Mark O. Madsen
  • Luis Saldana vs. Austin Lingo
  • Fabio Cherant vs. William Knight
  • Austin Hubbard vs. Vic Pichel
  • Chase Sherman vs. Parker Porter
  • Brian Kelleher vs. Domingo Pilarte
  • Ramiz Brahimaj vs. Sasha Palatnikov
