Baeza (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) meets Lima (15-9 MMA, 4-7 UFC) at a UFC Fight Night event on April 16, which doesn’t yet have a publicly known venue or location.
Both fighters confirmed the booking on social media Monday following an initial report from Best Fight Picks.
Baeza, a Dana White’s Contender Series graduate, will look to snap a two-fight losing skid after an unbeaten start to his pro MMA career. After a “Fight of the Night” war against Santiago Ponzinibbio in June, Baeza was stopped in the third round by Khaos Williams at UFC Fight Night 197 in November.
Lima is also coming off back-to-back losses. “The Ultimate Fighter 25” finalist scored three straight octagon wins, including a victory over Court McGee, but then dropped a decision to Belal Muhammad and, most recently, a knockout loss to Matt Brown in June.
With the addition, the UFC Fight Night on April 16 lineup includes:
Brandon Jenkins vs. Drakkar Klose
Miguel Baeza vs. Dhiego Lima
