After an impressive outing in his UFC debut, Henry Cejudo has been booked to fight a top ten, ranked flyweight next.

The UFC has announced that Cejudo will fight the #9 ranked Chris Cariaso, on March 14th at UFC 185.

Cejudo (7-0) made his Octagon debut in December, and the Olympic Gold medalist wrestler worked his way to a decision win over Dustin Kimura.

Cariaso (17-6), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since September, when he was submitted by champion Demetrious Johnson. Prior to the defeat Cariaso had won three straight.

UFC 185 will be hosted by the American Airlines Center in Dallas. In the main event, lightweight champion Anthony Pettis will face Rafael dos Anjos.
