Paddy Holohan and Willie Gates will square off next month as part of UFC Fight Night 87.
The bout was recently added to the May 8 lineup from the Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Alistair Overeem takes on Andrei Arlovski in the main event.
Holohan (12-2-1) has posted a 3-2 record over five Octagon appearances, but his two-fight win streak was snapped last October with a submission loss to Louis Smolka. The Irish fighter has topped Vaughan Lee, Shane Howell and Josh Sampo over the past two years.
Gates (12-6) was finished by Dustin Ortiz last August after stopping Darrell Montague earlier last year for his first UFC win. His dropped his debut – on short notice – to former top contender John Moraga in 2014.
Other planned bouts include Antonio Silva vs. Stefan Struve, Gunnar Nelson vs. Albert Tumenov and Germaine de Randamie vs. Anna Elmose.
