A flyweight division attraction has been added to the yet to be announced UFC card on December 5 as Jimmy Flick faces Cody Durden.
MMA Matchmaking first reported the bout.
Flick (15-5-0) is making his UFC debut in this bout and does so on the strength of a three-fight winning streak. Flick competed on Dana White’s Contender Series Episode 31, defeating Nate Smith by third-round submission. Flick has picked up 13 of 15 professional MMA wins by submission, with the other two coming by decision.
Durden (11-2-1) is winless thus far under the UFC banner, fighting Chris Gutierrez to a unanimous draw at UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Shahbazyan.
