Tristan Connelly has yet to fight, since his electrifying UFC debut in 2019, but it looks like that will change soon.

Connelly moved up to welterweight, on short notice in September, 2019, and defeated Michel Pereira by decision. The 35-year-old Canadian underwent neck surgery, however, and has been sidelined as a result.

Recently MMA Junkie reported, however, that Connelly (14-6) will face Pat Sabatini (13-3) at the April 24th card, UFC 261 card.

The 30-year-old Sabatini is the CCFC featherweight champ and will be making his Octagon debut.

UFC 261 will take place in Jacksonville, Florida.
