Kyoji Horiguchi will head to the Netherlands in his quest to get another flyweight title shot.

The Japanese standout will meet Neil Seery at UFC Fight Night 87 on May 8 in Rotterdam, the UFC announced Wednesday.

Horiguchi (16-2) has won five out of his six UFC fights, with the only loss along the way a challenge to Demetrious Johnson's flyweight belt at UFC 186. He rebounded from the loss with a victory over Chico Camus via unanimous decision on Sept. 25. Horiguchi has won 10 of his last 11 fights overall.

Seery (16-11), meanwhile, enters the matchup the winner of three out of his last four fights. Most recently the Dublin native earned Performance of the Night honors when he submitted Jon de los Reyes in Seery's hometown last October.

The Rotterdam card will be headlined by a heavyweight showdown between Andrei Arlovski and Alistair Overeem.
