Joshua Culibao will try to achieve his first octagonal victory when he meets Chinese talent Yilan Sha in a featherweight match on May 22, many people knowing about the reservation told MMA Fighting.
The UFC has yet to reveal the location and broadcast details of the show, where Rob Font was featured in a tiny five-rounds ceiling tile against Cody Garbrandt.
Australian Culibao (8-1-1) joined the UFC in 2020 as an unbeatable 8-0 prospect, but lost to Jalin Turner via TKO before entering a draw with Charles Jourdain eight months later.
Sha (19-6) dropped to 145 pounds after climbing 4-1 in lightweight in the last five MMA games in his hometown of China, stopping three of his opponent.
“Wolverine” is a teammate of the rising Chinese welterweight prospect, Xiaonan Yan, who competed in a potential # 1 contestant match that night against former UFC champion Carla Esparza.
