Miguel Baeza vs. Dhiego Lima joins April 16 lineup

    Welterweights Miguel Baezaย and Dhiego Lima will look to rebound when they square off in April.

    Baeza (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) meets Lima (15-9 MMA, 4-7 UFC) at a UFC Fight Night event on April 16, which doesnโ€™t yet have a publicly known venue or location.

    Both fighters confirmed the booking on social media Monday following an initial report from Best Fight Picks.

    Baeza, a Dana Whiteโ€™s Contender Series graduate, will look to snap a two-fight losing skid after an unbeaten start to his pro MMA career. After a โ€œFight of the Nightโ€ war against Santiago Ponzinibbio in June, Baeza was stopped in the third round by Khaos Williams at UFC Fight Night 197 in November.

    Lima is also coming off back-to-back losses. โ€œThe Ultimate Fighter 25โ€ finalist scored three straight octagon wins, including a victory over Court McGee, but then dropped a decision to Belal Muhammad and, most recently, a knockout loss to Matt Brown in June.

    With the addition, the UFC Fight Night on April 16 lineup includes:

    • Brandon Jenkins vs. Drakkar Klose
    • Miguel Baeza vs. Dhiego Lima
