Matt Mitrione has been placed on the next FOX card, as he will meet Brendan Schaub at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga. Officials confirmed the fight late Wednesday night.
The event takes place July 27 from Seattle’s KeyArena. No word yet on where the Mitrione-Schaub bout will land.
Mitrione (6-2) is coming off a win over Philip De Fries, but that pales in comparison to what happened after the fight. In the days after, he called out transgender fighter Fallon Fox and was promptly suspended by the UFC.
Schaub (9-3) was a finalist on The Ultimate Fighter the same season Mitrione competed on the show. He has gone 5-3 inside the Octagon, including a win earlier this year over Lavar Johnson.
Both Mitrione and Schaub are former NFL players.
