Matt Brown will look to secure his UFC future when he returns to action at the “Ultimate Fighter” 13 finale in June facing American Top Team fighter Rich Attonito.
The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the match-up on Monday. Heavy.com initially reported the fight.
Brown (11-10) was set to return to action at UFC on Versus 3 earlier this month, but when his opponent fell out of the scheduled bout, he was yanked from the card all together.
Now back in his home state of Ohio, Brown will look to recover from his recent three fight skid as he faces a fellow former “Ultimate Fighter” alum in June.
Dropping from middleweight to welterweight, Rich Attonito (9-4) looks to make the most of his debut at 170lbs when he fights in June.
Since his time on the the 11th season of the reality show, Attonito has gone 2-1, but his recent loss to Dave Branch pushed him to drop down to 170lbs.
