Billy Quarantillo has revealed the who and when of his next fight.

On his OnlyFans page (no, it’s not that kind of OnlyFans page), Quarantillo (17-5) announced that he will be fighting Damon Jackson (22-5-1, 1NC) on August 5, at a Fight Night event expected to take place in Nashville, TN.

Promotion officials have not officially announced the date or location, but all signs point to the octagon returning to the Tennessee capital for the sixth time — and first since 2019, prior to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

Quarantillo will be looking to bounce back from a loss to Edson Barboza in the co-main event of UFC Kansas City, which saw him finished by a nasty knee delivered by the Brazilian veteran.

“Billy Q” has been trading wins and losses the past couple of years, getting his hand raised against Gabriel Benitez and Alexander Hernandez, while losing to Shane Burgos and Barboza.

Jackson is on his second stint with the UFC, and had a four-fight win streak snapped in his last outing when he suffered a knockout at the hands of Dan Ige.

UFC Nashville — assuming that’s how the August 5, 2023 Fight Night event plays out — currently has the following match-ups reported for it:

  • Virna Jandiroba vs. Tatiana Suarez
  • Tanner Boser vs. Aleksa Camur
  • Dustin Jacoby vs. Kennedy Nzechukwu
  • Said Nurmagomedov vs. Kyler Phillips
  • Ode’ Osbourne vs. Asu Almabaev
  • Damon Jackson vs. Billy Quarantillo
