Matt Brown vs Dhiego Lima set for June 19th

Matt “The Immortal” Brown (22-18 MMA, 15-13 UFC) was rumored to be in the pipeline as a comeback fight for Dan Hardy. However, the 40-year-old who has no plans of retiring will now look to rebound from two consecutive losses to Carlos Condit and Miguel Baeza against Lima.

Dhiego Lima (15-8 MMA, 3-3 UFC), who is the brother of Bellator champion Douglas Lima, fights out of American Top Team. The Brazilian is coming off a recent loss to #13 ranked welterweight Belal Muhammad at UFC 258 having previously been on a three-fight winning streak.
