UFC 166 Receives Bantamweight Fight Between Dustin Pague, Kyoji Horiguchi

Bantamweight Dustin Pague will welcome Kyoji Horiguchi to the Octagon this October at UFC 166. Officials announced the bout on Friday.

UFC 166 takes place from Houston and features a main event between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title. Also, Daniel Cormier takes on Roy Nelson in the co-main event.

Pague (11-8) is on a three-fight losing skid, all of which have come via decision. Two of those were split decision defeats, including his most recent, a June loss to Yves Jabouin.

The 22-year-old Horiguchi (11-1) has won five straight since suffering his first career loss in 2012 to Masakatsu Ueda.
