UFC officials announced the bout overnight on Wednesday.
Since losing to current top light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson three fights ago, James Te Huna has not again tasted defeat.
Te Huna has dispatched of Ricardo Romero, Aaron Rosa and most recently Joey Beltran at his last fight in July.
Now the New Zealand native takes on the man tied for the fastest knockout in UFC history.
Following a long career in Maximum Fighting Championships in Canada, Ryan Jimmo finally made his UFC debut in July at UFC 149 where he promptly knocked out Anthony Peros in only seven seconds.
Jimmo probably would have taken home the spot for fastest knockout in UFC history if not for the referee taking a moment to run in and actually call a stop to the fight.
Either way, Jimmo made it into the history books and now hopes to keep his winning streak of 17 straight alive when he faces Te Huna in February as part of the UFC’s return to England.
