UFC Fight Night 30 continues to fill out as a featherweight matchup between Jimy Hettes and Mike Wilkinson. UFC officials have yet to announce where the bout will land on the card’s lineup. MMAFighting first reported the bout.
The pairing pits two fighters coming off their first career losses. Mike Wilkinson heads into the bout after dropping his UFC debut to Rony “Jason” at UFC on FUEL TV 10. His opponent, Hettes, dropped to 2-1 in the Octagon after losing to Marcus Brimage at UFC 152. Hettes was supposed to face off with Steven Siler at UFC 159 before a knee injury sidelined him.
UFC Fight Night 30 is scheduled for October 26 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. The fight card will be headlined by a middleweight showdown between top challengers Michael Bisping and Mark Muñoz. While most of the UFC Fight Night cards will normally air on FOX Sports 1, this card will air on FOX Sports 2 (what is now FUEL TV).
