Luigi Vendramini vs. Fares Ziam added to UFC263 – MMA Sports

The battle between lightweight prospects is the latest addition to UFC263.

Luigi Bendra Mini (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will undertake Fares Jiam (11-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) June 12, an event whose venue or location has not yet been announced.

Two people who knew the matchup notified MMA Junkie of the reservation on Friday, but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion had not yet been officially announced.

Vendra Mini made an impressive show at his UFC debut in September 2018, but was eventually stopped by Eliseu Zareskeydos Santos. ACL surgery has left him on the sidelines for over two years and finally returned to the UFC at ESPN 16 this October. He did Jessin Ayari’s quick job and won the “Performance of the Night” bonus in his first round knockout.

France and Algeria’s Jiam also split their first two UFC appearances. After being defeated by Don Madge in his promotional debut at UFC 242, the 23-year-old rebounded after unanimously defeating Jamie Muraki at the UFC Fight Night 180 last October.

In addition, the UFC263 lineup includes:

  • Champ Daveson Figueiredo vs Brandon Moreno – Flyweight Title
  • Jake Collier vs. Carlos Felipe
  • Luigi Vendramini vs Fares Ziam
