The UFC’s June event in New Zealand, UFC Fight Night 43, has its second bout.
Featherweights Hatsu Hioki (27-7-2 MMA, 3-3 UFC) and Charles Oliveira (17-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC) have agreed to meet at the event. Tatame first reported the booking.
UFC Fight Night 43 takes place June 28 at Vector Arena in Auckland and is expected to stream on UFC Fight Pass. The show, which features a Nate Marquardt vs. James Te Huna middleweight headliner, takes place the same day as UFC Fight Night 44 in San Antonio.
Hioki vs. Oliveira will likely take a prominent spot on the card, which marks the organization’s New Zealand debut.
