A middleweight bout between Phil Baroni and John Salter is on tap for UFC 118 in August.
MMAFighting.com reported the news on Sunday afternoon.
UFC 118 takes place Aug. 28 at the TD Garden in Boston. A lightweight title rematch between B.J. Penn and current champ Frankie Edgar is scheduled to headline the event, while the mixed martial arts debut of veteran boxer James Toney against MMA legend Randy Couture will co-headline the show.
The Baroni/Salter bout will take place on the evening’s preliminary card.
The bout will be Baroni’s first back at middleweight after a brief sojourn at welterweight. Baroni lost to Amir Sadollah at UFC 106 in his return to the company.
