An exciting lightweight contest has been added to the UFC’s March 20th event.

As first reported by The New Zealand Herald, the current #15 ranked Gregor Gillespie will take on Kiwi Brad Riddell.

Gillespie (13-1) has not been seen in the octagon for over a year having suffered the first loss of his professional career in his last outing. Being on the receiving end of a first-round KO by Kevin Lee in November 2019, ‘The Gift’ saw his perfect 6-0 promotional record come to an end. Of his 13 victories, 11 have come inside the scheduled distance.

Riddell (9-1) meanwhile is still unbeaten in his UFC tenure having won all three of his promotional bouts. Since debuting in 2019, the former kickboxer has won all three of his fights on the judges’ scorecards.

The UFC’s March 20th event is set to be headlined by a middleweight clash between Derek Brunson and Kevin Holland.
