Matt Brown has already been signed for his next fight, as following his loss to Demian Maia earlier this month, the UFC’s announced he’ll fight Jake Ellenberger on July 30th.

UFC 201 will take place on that date at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

Brown (20-14) tapped out to a third round, rear-naked-choke from Maia at UFC 198 on May 14th. The loss was Brown’s third in his last five fights, although his other defeats came against current champ Robbie Lawler, and former champ Johny Hendricks.

Ellenberger (30-11) was outscored by Tarec Saffiedine in January and lost the bout via UD. Ellenberger’s only win in his last six bouts came against Josh Koshcheck in February, 2015.

The headlining bout for UFC 201 will feature Lawler taking on Tyron Woodley.
