Kickboxing star Gokhan Saki has been booked for his UFC debut, as the promotion’s announced he’ll fight Hendrique da Silva on September 23rd.

The bout will be part of UFC Fight Night 117, which will take place in Saitama, Japan.

Saki will be competing in just the second MMA bout of his career, as the vaunted striker was stopped by James Zikic back in 2004. Saki, however, holds a record of 83-12 in pro-kickboxing.

Da Silva (12-3) is coming off a stoppage loss to Ion Cutelaba last month, and the light-heavyweight has lost three straight bouts.
