An Ultimate Fighter finalist will meet a debuting prospect at UFC on FX 4 in Atlantic City, N.J., as Ramsey Nijem meets C.J. Keith in a lightweight battle.
Sources at the AMR group who represent Nijem confirmed the fight to MMAWeekly.com on Friday.
Following his run on The Ultimate Fighter season 13, Ramsey Nijem dropped down to the lightweight division and had an impressive showing against Danny Downes at UFC 137 last October.
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.
