A welterweight showdown pitting Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos against Curtis Millender has been added to the UFC Fight Night 146 lineup.
Brazilian outlet Combate was first to report the booking. UFC Fight Night 146 — also known as UFC on ESPN+4 — takes place at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan., on March 9 and is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Junior dos Santos and Derrick Lewis.
Dos Santos enters the matchup with Millender on a six-bout UFC winning streak that includes back-to-back knockouts of Luigi Vendramini and Sean Strickland in his last two outings. The Brazilian known as “Capoeira” owns a 20-5 career mark that includes 14 KO/TKO triumphs.
A four-fight Bellator veteran, Millender has kicked off his Octagon tenure with three consecutive victories. Most recently, “Curtious” outpointed Siyar Bahadurzada at UFC 232 to raise his career ledger to 17-3.
