Another light heavyweight contender fight is in the works.
Two people with knowledge of the matchup confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
Krylov (29-9 MMA, 10-7 UFC) partakes in his first UFC headliner in his 18th fight with the promotion. He enters the matchup riding back-to-back wins over former UFC light heavyweight title challengers Alexander Gustafsson and Volkan Oezdemir.
With the addition, the UFC Fight Night lineup for Feb. 25 includes:
Nikita Krylov vs. Ryan Spann
Jordan Leavitt vs. Victor Martinez
Hailey Cowan vs. Ailin Perez
Denys Bondar vs. Ode Osbourne
