A light heavyweight bout that was initially scheduled to take place at UFC Fight Night 69 has been moved back one week to UFC Fight Night 70 as Nikita Krylov will meet Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
The UFC confirmed the date change in the fight with The MMA Report on Tuesday.
UFC Fight Night 70 will come from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida on June 27 and will be headlined by a middleweight bout as former UFC champion Lyoto Machida meets Yoel Romero.
Krylov (18-4) dropped down to the light heavyweight division last year and after losing his 205 pound debut to Ovince St. Preux, he has won back to back fights. Both of those wins have come by stoppage and his most recent win came in January against Stanislav Nedkov. Lima (13-2-1) made his UFC debut last year and has won both of his fights in the promotion. He is unbeaten in his last six fights and both of his wins in the UFC have come by TKO/KO in the first round.
