Fresh off a victory over former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown at “UFC Fight for the Troops 2”, Rani Yahya is set to face off against Dustin Poirier at UFC 131.
The event is set to be headlined by a main event heavyweight battle between The Ultimate Fighter 13 coaches Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos.
The bout was reported by HeavyMMA.
Yahya (15-5) earned his first win in three bouts in his UFC debut against Brown.
Poirier (9-1) is coming off one of the biggest wins of his career, himself, defeating Josh Grispi at UFC 125. Grispi was expected to receive the next featherweight title shot at champion Jose Aldo with a win over Poirier.
Poirier earned a unanimous decision over Grispi, derailing Grispi’s title hopes for now.
UFC 131 is set to take place on June 11 from Vancouver.
