The UFC has made a late addition to its February 19, 2022 Fight Night event.

The promotion recently added a featherweight affair to the official card for UFC Vegas 48. That bout will see Gabriel Benitez (22-9) take on David Onama (8-1).

Both fighters will be looking to get back in the win column when they meet later this month.

Benitez last competed back in July, losing via TKO against Billy Quarantillo. “Moggly” is 1-3 in his last four fights, and in desperate need of a win to stay afloat in the featherweight waters. Benitez also saw a fight scratched last year after missing weight for a fight with Jonathan Martinez in May.

Onama will look to rebound from a loss in his promotional debut, which saw him lose a unanimous decision against Mason Jones.
