Featherweight Attraction Added To UFC 211

A featherweight division attraction has been added to the upcoming UFC 211 card as Jason Knight will be seeing action against Chas Skelly.

Knight (16-2-0) has won three of four fights under the UFC banner, with those three wins coming over Jim Alers, Dan Hooker and Alex Caceres. Knight is a former Atlas Fights Featherweight Champion, having defeated Michael Roberts by unanimous decision at Atlas Fights 23 to win the belt. Knight also competed once under the Titan Fighting Championships banner, defeating Musa Khamanaev by second round submission at Titan FC 35.

Skelly (17-2-0) will be entering the fight riding a two fight winning streak, with those wins coming over Maximo Blanco and Chris Gruetzenmacher. Skelly holds the record for the fastest featherweight submission win in UFC history, as the fighters tapped Maximo Blanco in just 19 seconds at UFC Fight Night 94. Skelly has only suffered a single defeated in the last two-plus years, with that loss coming to Darren Elkins by unanimous decision at UFC 196.

UFC 211 takes place on Saturday, May 13 from the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas with Stipe Miocic and Junior Dos Santos headlining. Fightful will be providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
