The UFC’s debut in Wichita just got a little bit bigger.

FloCombat has confirmed with sources close to the situation a bout between 6-7, 244-pound Daniel Spitz (6-2) and 6-2, 254-pound Jeff Hughes (10-1) is set for March 9's UFC on ESPN+ 4 fight card in Kansas. 

A three-fight UFC veteran, Spitz has had an up-and-down UFC tenure thus far, bookending a quick knockout victory over Anthony Hamilton at UFC Fight Night 116 with two tough losses.

In his last outing, Spitz was finished in the third round by lurking power-puncher Walt Harris. With his back potentially up against the wall, Spitz will look to make a statement against Ohio’s Jeff Hughes.

Hughes, LFA’s most recent heavyweight champion, will finally make his long-awaited UFC debut. The Stipe Miocic protege dominated the North American regional scene en route to his title victory for the standout promotion.

This past summer, Hughes earned himself a UFC contract on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, defeating seasoned veteran Josh Appelt via vicious TKO. 

The 30-year-old fighter is an excellent power, with proven punching power as well.

Stay tuned to FloCombat for all of the latest news, updates and announcements regarding UFC Wichita.
