It was Adams who announced the bout on the Beyond The Cage podcast, but its placement on the card isn’t known at this time.
Adams (5-2-0) enters the contest while in the midst of a two fight losing streak, dropping bouts to the duo of Arjan Singh Bhullar and Greg Hardy. Adams hasn’t picked up a victory in just about a year, with that last win coming over Chris De La Rocha at UFC On Fox 31. Adams has competed seven times as a professional MMA fighter and just one of those bouts went the distance.
Tafa (3-1-0) is winless thus far under the UFC banner, having dropped a bout to Yorgan De Castro at UFC 243. Tafa previously competed in the Xtreme Fighting Championships promotion, where he won all three bouts by KO/TKO. Tafa has competed a total of four times as a professional MMA fighter and he has yet to go past the second round.
