A matchup between two welterweights has been booked for UFC Fight Night 191 when Carlston Harris and Christian Aguilera meet. Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie was the first to report news of the fight.

Welterweights Christian Aguilera and Carlston Harris Will Fight on May 8

Christian Aguilera (14-7 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will be entering the bout looking to rebound from his first loss in the promotion. In his debut he earned a TKO victory over Anthony Ivy in less than a minute back in June. In his sophomore appearance he came up short against Sean Brady. Aguilera will be looking to avoid consecutive losses in the promotion.

Carlston Harris (15-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will be looking to become the first fighter from Guyana to earn a victory inside the promotion. His story was one of the most heartfelt in the history of Dana White’s Lookin’ for a Fight. At 33-years-old, he was granted the chance of a lifetime by the UFC. He is coming off of a D’arce choke victory over Saygid Izagakhmaev at UEW Warriors 15.

UFC Fight Night 191 is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. UFC veterans Donald Cerrone and Diego Sanchez are reportedly serving as the event headliner. Although not confirmed by the promotion, the list of reported bouts on tap are below:

  • Welterweight: Donald Cerrone vs Diego Sanchez
  • Bantamweight: Holly Holm vs Julianna Pena
  • Flyweight: Ryan Benoit vs Zarrukh Adashev
  • Heavyweight: Maurice Greene vs Marcos Rogerio de Lima
  • Welterweight: Christian Aguilera vs Carlston Harris
