The June 14th, UFC 174 card in Vancouver, British Columbia has booked its first fight, as Daniel Sarafian will take on welterweight Kiichi Kunimoto. The upcoming event, which marks the UFC’s first return to Vancouver since 2011, will be hosted by the city’s Rogers Arena.

News of the match-up was tweeted by the UFC, after it was first reported by the B.C. publication, The Province.

Sarafian (8-4) will be looking to rebound from a split decision loss to Cezar Ferreira, which took place in November, 2013. The Brazilian fighter, who has gone 1-2 to date in the Octagon, will be making his welterweight debut.

Kunimoto (16-5-2) won his UFC debut in January, after Luiz Jorge Dutra Jr. was disqualified for hitting him with illegal elbows to the back of the head. The Japanese veteran has won five bouts in a row.
