The May 24th, UFC 173 card in Las Vegas has received a compelling bantamweight bout, as the promotion has announced that TJ Dillashaw will face Takeya Mizugaki.

Dillashaw (9-2) recently rebounded from split decision loss to Raphael Assuncao in October, by handing Mike Easton a UD defeat at UFC FN 35. The Team Alpha male fighter is currently ranked #5 in the UFC’s 135 pound division, and is 4-1 in his last five fights.

Mizugaki (19-7-2) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Nam Phan in December, after defeating Erik Perez by split decision last August. The Hakkei Gym competitor has won four straight fights and is currently ranked #7.

UFC 173 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will feature middleweight champ Chris Weidman taking on Vitor Belfort.
