The UFC has signed undefeated middleweight Joe Gigliotti and he will make his promotional debut next month at UFC Fight Night 92 in Salt Lake City, Utah against Trevor Smith.
The signing of Gigliotti and fight booking against Smith was recently announced by the UFC.
UFC Fight Night 92 will come from the Vivint Smart Home Arena on August 6 and will be headlined by a featherweight bout as Ultimate Fighter Latin America winner Yair Rodriguez will meet Ultimate Fighter 12 alum Alex Caceres.
Gigliotti (7-0) comes to the UFC after defeating John Poppie by submission at RFA 37 and had been scheduled to meet Trevin Giles at RFA 41 later this month. All of his wins have come by stoppage and three of his last four wins have come by submission in the opening round. Smith (13-6) is coming off a win against Dan Miller at The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale last year and he has alternated wins and losses in his last five fights. Since entering the UFC in 2013, he has gone 3-3 and all of those victories have come by decision.
