Jack Della Maddalena’s UFC Return Date, Opponent Revealed

UFC welterweight prospect Jack Della Maddalena will get the opportunity to fight on home soil at UFC 284.

Della Maddalena has burst onto the scene since a win on Dana White‘s Contender Series in 2021. He’s 3-0 in his UFC tenure after recent knockouts of Danny Roberts and Ramazan Emeev.

After his recent performances, Della Maddalena will get a big boost in competition at UFC 284. According to reports, he’ll face Randy Brown on February 11th.

MMA journalist Marcel Dorff was the first to report the news of Della Maddalena’s booking for UFC Perth.

Since a loss to Vicente Luque in Aug. 2020, Brown has won four consecutive fights. He most recently earned a unanimous decision victory over Francisco Trinaldo last October.
