Sources at the AMR group who represent Nijem confirmed the fight to MMAWeekly.com on Friday.
Nijem was set to return in December against Anthony Njokuani, but suffered a broken hand in training and was forced to wait until healthy to get back in the cage again. Now that his hand is recovered, Nijem has been looking for a fight and now he finally has one.
Awaiting Nijem in Atlantic City will be 8-0 prospect C.J. Keith who finally makes his UFC debut after signing with the promotion several months ago.
Keith was going to debut earlier, but just after signing his UFC contract, the fighter’s family house burned down and he was given time to deal with the setback, but now he’s ready to make his first appearance in the Octagon.
Nijem vs. Keith is the latest addition to the growing UFC on FX 4 fight card set to land in Atlantic City at the Revel on June 22.
