A featherweight matchup has been added to the UFC’s June closeout fight card.
Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed to MMA Fighting that a bout between Andre Fili and Daniel Pineda will serve as a late addition to UFC Vegas 30. The event takes place June 26 at the APEX and will air on ESPN+. BJPenn.com was first to report the booking.
Fili will look to get back on track following a unanimous decision loss to Bryce Mitchell at UFC Vegas 12 this past October. “Touchy” is victorious in three of his last five appearances, which includes wins over Charles Jourdain, Sheymon Moraes and Myles Jury.
Pineda will also be looking to bounce back from a loss in his most recent fight, a second-round KO at the hands of Cub Swanson at UFC 256. “The Pit” made a big impression in his octagon debut when he stopped Herbert Burns via second-round TKO at UFC 252 in August 2020.
