MMA DNA was first to report the bantamweight booking. The UFC
Fight Night card takes place at an as yet to be announced location
and is headlined by a featherweight duel pitting Chan Sung
Jung against Dan Ige.
Vera and Grant initially fought in February 2016, with Grant taking
a three-round verdict at UFC Fight Night 84.
Vera went 1-2 in three 2020 appearances, sandwiching a TKO win over
Sean O’Malley between decision losses against Yadong Song
Aldo. The 28-year-old Team Oyama representative is 10-6 during
his promotional tenure and 16-7 as a professional overall.
Grant has been on a roll of late, posting three consecutive
victories in the Octagon — including back-to-back knockouts of
Day and Jonathan
Martinez. “The Ultimate Fighter 18” cast member has competed
infrequently since his appearance on the reality show in 2013,
compiling a 4-3 record in the Las Vegas-based promotion.
