A featherweight tilt between Justin Lawrence (4-0) and Max Holloway (6-1) comes as the latest addition to August's UFC 150.
UFC officials announced the bout on Monday.
UFC 150 takes place on August 11 at Denver's Pepsi Center and is headlined by a lightweight title clash between recently-crowned champ Ben Henderson and ex-titleholder Frankie Edgar. Additional bouts include Jake Shields vs. Ed Herman and Rousimar Palhares vs. Yushin Okami.
The 22-year-old Lawrence recently found success in his Octagon debut after knocking out John Cofer at "The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale" earlier this month. The former kickboxing champion and Golden Gloves boxer came up short on The Ultimate Fighter Live last season, however, remains unbeaten as a professional.
At just 20-year-old, Holloway stands as the youngest fighter on the UFC roster, though has posted a 1-1 record under the promotion's banner. After suffering a submission defeat to Dustin Poirier in his Octagon debut last February, the Hawaiian rebounded with a dominant decision victory over Pat Schilling.
