A featherweight clash between two former Dana White’s Contender Series competitors has been added to the upcoming UFC Fight Night event on June 15 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Lucas Almeida (14-3) will lock horns with Timothy Cuamba (8-2) in what will mark the latter’s first featherweight outing under the Ultimate Fighting Championshipbanner. The news was first reported on X (formerly known as Twitter) by MMAHeads. The bout was subsequently confirmed by Almeida on his social media handles.

Following a successful promotional debut against Michael Trizano in June 2022, Almeida is now on a two-fight skid. The Brazilian succumbed to a Round 2 arm-triangle submission in his sophomore UFC outing against Pat Sabitini in June 2023 followed by a Round 1 technical knockout loss suffered at the hands of Andre Fili at UFC 296 in December last year.

Meanwhile, Cuamba is coming off a hard-fought split-decision loss to Bolaji Oki in a short notice promotional debut at lightweight UFC Fight Night 236 in February.

The Fight Night card will also feature Alex Perez vs. Tagir Ulanbekov at flyweight and Ikram Aliskerov taking on Andre Muniz at middleweight.
