Promotion officials announced the pairing on Friday. UFC Fight
Night 118 takes place at Ergo Arena in Gdansk Poland and is
headlined by a welterweight clash pitting Donald
Cerrone against Darren Till.
The card streams in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
Emmett suffered the first loss of his 12-bout professional career
at UFC 210, as he dropped a split decision against Desmond
Green. The Team Alpha Male representative began his promotional
tenure with back-to-back triumphs over Jon Tuck and
Arantes was supposed to face Luke
Sanders in a bantamweight bout at UFC Fight Night in Pittsburgh
last Saturday but withdrew from the bout one day prior due to
illness. “Sertanejo” last appeared at UFC Fight Night 98, losing a
split decision to Erik Perez.
Arantes is 5-4-1 in the Octagon overall.
