Rafael Fiziev will be aiming to put his defeat to Justin Gaethje behind him when he and Mateusz Gamrot headline UFC Fight Night.
The Azeri was on the wrong side of a majority decision against the American at UFC 286, ending a six-fight winning streak, which included a knockout of former champion Rafael dos Anjos.
Fellow lightweight Gamrot bounced back from his own defeat to Beneil Dariush by getting the judges' call on a split decision against Jalil Turner at UFC 285.
With the pair ranked sixth and seventh in the UFC's rankings, they will see the fight in Enterprise as their chance to move closer to a potential title shot.
