A featherweight match-up pitting top-10 ranked Dustin Poirier (15-3) against unranked Akira Corassani (12-3) is the latest addition to the fight card of April's The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale.

UFC officials announced the bout on Friday.

Poirier, 25, is currently the No. 6 ranked featherweight on the UFC roster. The American rides a two-fight win streak into the bout, having outpointed Erik Koch in August, and most recently stopping Diego Brandao via first-round knockout in December.

Likewise Corassani, 31, carries the momentum of a three straight victories to kick off his UFC career. The Swede edged Andy Ogle via split decision in 2012, then defeated Robbie Peralta and Maximo Blanco in succession last year.
