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.

TUF Nations Finale takes place April 16, 2014 at the Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City, Canada. An updated fight card can be seen below.
