Middleweight action is headed to Las Vegas as part of the UFC’s May 21 Fight Night event.

Booked for the card are Chidi Njokuani (21-7) and Dusko Todorovic (11-2), who will both enter the fight off recent wins. Gradske Info was first to report the news, with both fighters subsequently confirming the match-up on social media.

Njokuani won his way into the promotion on Dana White’s Contender Series last year, then impressed in his debut, stopping Marc-Andre Barriault in just 16 seconds. The knockout victory was Njokuani’s third straight.

A former Bellator MMA fighter, Chidi Njokuani is the brother of UFC veteran Anthony Njokuani, crediting his sibling for his career success after the Barriault fight.
