The latest fight for the adopted brother of top lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov is the highlight of a slew of bouts announced for World Series of Fighting 30 in Las Vegas.

Abubakar Nurmagomedov (11-1-1), winner of three straight fights, will meet Australia's Matthew Fincu (7-1), who has won five in a row, in the top-billed prelim bout for the April 2 event at the Hard Rock Hotel.

This was one of five matchups announced by the company Monday.

Also announced: A lightweight fight between Steve Kozola (6-0) and Gil Guardado (5-1); a flyweight matchup with Carlos Garcia (1-1) meeting Jason Pacheco (1-0); bantamweight Adam Acquaviva (4-2) vs. Andres Ponce (3-2); and Jeff Roman (1-2-1) vs. Nick Salantri (0-1) in a welterweight bout.

WSOF 30 feature a pair of title fights, with David Branch defending his middleweight title against Clifford Starks in the main event and Jon Fitch taking on Jaoo Zeferino for the vacant welterweight belt.
