Sasha Palatnikov will meet Ramiz Brahimaj in a welterweight clash at a UFC event on Aug. 21.

MMAjunkie.com was first to report the booking. The card takes place at an as yet to be announced location and is headlined by a middleweight tilt pitting Paulo Costa against Jared Cannonier.

After a victorious Octagon debut against Louis Cosce at UFC 255, Palatnikov was submitted by Impa Kasanganay in the second round at UFC on ABC 2 on April 10. The former Angel’s Fighting Championship title holder is 6-3 as a professional, with three wins via KO/TKO and three by decision.

Brahimaj came up short in his promotional debut, falling to Max Griffin via third-round TKO at UFC on ESPN 17. The Legacy Fighting Alliance veteran is 8-3 as a pro, with all of his triumphs coming by way of submission.
