Teruto Ishihara will return to the bantamweight division to face Jose Alberto Quinonez at UFC 221.

The promotion’s Japanese Twitter account confirmed the pairing on Tuesday evening. UFC 221 takes place at Perth Arena in Perth, Australia on Feb. 10 and is headlined by a middleweight championship clash between Robert Whittaker and Luke Rockhold.

Ishihara has compiled a 3-2-1 mark in the Octagon, including a unanimous decision triumph over Rolando Dy in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 117 on Sept. 22. The Team Alpha Male product has competed solely at 145 pounds in the UFC but fought at bantamweight for the Shooto organization in Japan.

After losing his Octagon debut, Quinonez has won his last three UFC appearances. Most recently, “El Teco” captured a unanimous decision against Diego Rivas at UFC Fight Night 114 on Aug. 5.
