A featherweight bout pitting China’s Nuerdanbieke Shayilan against former Legacy Fighting Alliance competitor Melquizael Costa has been added to UFC on ESPN 58 on June 15 at the Apex in Las Vegas.

The news was first reported by Eurosport Nl’s Marcel Dorff on X (formerly known as Twitter) and also confirmed by Costa on his social media handles. The card will be headlined by a flyweight meeting between Alex Perez and Tatsuro Taira.

Shayilan (39-11) will be aiming to return to winning ways following a Round 2 knockout loss at the hands of Steve Garcia at UFC 287 in April last year. Prior to that, the Chinese national was on a three-fight winning streak in the promotion, with wins over T.J. Brown, Darrick Minner and Sean Soriano.

As for Costa (20-7), the Brazilian is also coming off a Round 2 knockout loss against Garcia in December of last year. He currently sports a 1-2 Ultimate Fighting Championship record.
