After the first Rani Yahya-Johnny Bedford encounter ended in a no-contest, and the two exchanged heated post-fight challenges, a rematch has been booked for June 28th.

The bantamweight bout will be part of UFC Fight Night 44 in San Antonio, Texas, which will feature Jeremy Stephens taking on featherweight Cub Swanson in the main event.

Yahya and Bedford met for the first time on April 11th at UFC FN 39, but the bout was declared a no-contest, after Yahya was floored from an accidental head butt.

Bedford (19-10-1) was coming off a submission loss to Bryan Caraway heading into the fight, while Rahya (19-8) was looking to rebound from a split decision loss to Tom Niinimaki.

UFC FN 44 will be hosted by San Antonio’s AT&T Center.
