The UFC announced that two-division LFA champion Kenney will make his promotional debut this weekend:

“A two-fight veteran of Dana White‘s Tuesday Night Contender Series, Casey Kenney will make his Octagon debut this Saturday in Philadelphia as he replaces Kyler Phillips against Ray Borg in a UFC Fight Night on ESPN bout at bantamweight. Fresh off a 98-second knockout of Vince Cachero on March 22 that made him a two-division champion in the LFA promotion, Kenney will now begin his quest for UFC gold against former flyweight title challenger Borg this weekend.”

Also featured on the main card will be David Branch vs. Jack Hermansson, Josh Emmett vs. Michael Johnson, Michelle Waterson vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Paul Craig vs. Kennedy Nzechukwu, and Sheymon Moraes vs. Sodiq Yusuff.
