A welterweight showdown between Luke Jumeau and Shinsho Anzai has been added to the UFC Fight Night 117 lineup.

The Las Vegas-based promotion recently announced the matchup. UFC Fight Night 117 takes place at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on Sept. 23 and is headlined by a light heavyweight rematch between Ovince St. Preux and Mauricio Rua. The card is expected to air on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Jumeau made his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 110, where he outpointed Dominque Steele on June 10. “The Jedi” improved to 12-3 with that victory and has now won his last seven professional appearances.

Anzai will be competing for the first time since Sept. 26, 2015, when he earned a third-round TKO triumph over Roger Zapata at UFC Fight Night 75. The 31-year-old Tokyo native has won seven of his last eight bouts, with five of those victories coming via technical knockout.
