The UFC is targeting a pair of light heavyweight matchups for a UFC Fight Night event on June 1.
According to multiple sources, former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir will face Ilir Latifi, and Jimi Manuwa has agreed to square off against Aleksandar Rakic. The event is scheduled to take place at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
The card has turned into a showcase for the 205-pound division. In addition to the two new matchups, a light heavyweight bout between three-time title challenger Alexander Gustafsson (18-5) and Anthony Smith (31-14) is scheduled to headline.
Latifi (14-6), of Sweden, is looking to bounce back from a decision loss to Corey Anderson in December.
Rakic (11-1), of Austria, is 3-0 in the UFC, including a first-round finish against Devin Clark in December.
