Fresh off an impressive win at UFC San Antonio, Nate Landwehr already has his next fight booked.

News of the featherweight pairing was first reported by MMA Fighting.

Nate “The Train” Landwehr, a former M-1 featherweight champ, has built up a solid head of steam over the past year, winning three straight fights inside the octagon.
