Miguel Baeza will lock horns with Takashi Sato in a welterweight bout at an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on Nov. 28.
MMA DNA was first to report the booking. The card takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a heavyweight duel pitting Curtis Blaydes against Derrick Lewis.
A competitor on Season 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series, Baeza has kicked off his promotional tenure with technical knockout victories against Hector Aldana and Matt Brown. The 28-year-old known as “Caramel Thunder” is 9-0 with seven wins coming by KO or TKO.
The 30-year-old Sato has been victorious in two of his three Octagon appearances. Most recently, the 30-year-old Tokyo native stopped Jason Witt 48 seconds into the opening stanza at UFC on ESPN 12 on June 27. The Pancrase veteran is 16-3 as a pro, with 13 wins coming inside the distance.
