UFC welterweight Curtis Millender will put his seven-fight winning streak on the line July 7 at UFC 226 at T-Mobile Arena.
Sources close to the organization confirmed the rumored bout to the Review-Journal on Wednesday.
Millender will face Max Griffin, who is coming off an impressive win over Mike Perry on a Fox card in Orlando.
Griffin has alternated wins and losses in four fights since signing with UFC in 2016.
Millender won his UFC debut with a second-round knockout of veteran Thiago Alves in February. His previous victories had come in Bellator and Legacy Fighting Alliance bouts as well as a pair of bouts on the regional circuit.
UFC 226 will cap the UFC’s annual International Fight Week in Las Vegas. The pay-per-view card is headlined by a heavyweight title bout between champion Stipe Miocic and light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier.
