Ultimate Fighter finalist Ramsey Nijem will face C.J. Keith at UFC on FX 4 on June 22 from Atlantic City, New Jersey where Nijem will have an opportunity to show his continued evolution as a fighter while Keith will be looking to maintain his perfect record.
Nijem (5-2) has split his two UFC fights, defeating Danny Downes after dropping down from welterweight to lightweight. He lost to Tony Ferguson in the finals of TUF 13.
Keith (8-0) had his UFC debut postponed after a fire destroyed the home of his family just days after signing his contract. Keith’s last three fights ended in knockout, including two in the first.
MMAWeekly was first to confirm the clash.
The main event for the card will feature lightweights Clay Guida and Gray Maynard. Other fighters set to be featured at the show include Rick Story and Dan Miller. It was not made known if the Nijem-Keith bout would be part of the main card or prelims.
