UFC Fight Pass has snagged another intriguing matchup.

The UFC announced Tuesday that the bantamweight grudge match between Aljamain Sterling and Bryan Caraway would be the feature bout of the Fight Pass portion of UFC Fight Night 88 on May 29 in Las Vegas.

The undefeated Sterling (12-0) will compete for the first time since signing his new UFC contract. He last fought on Dec. 10, a second-round submission victory over Johnny Eduardo.

Caraway (20-7) is best known as the boyfriend of current UFC women's bantamweight champ Miesha Tate, but he's a solid fighter in his own right. His decision victory over Eddie Wineland at UFC on FOX 16 in Chicago was his third victory in his past four fights.

The bout was signed after quite a bit of back-and-forth words between the duo online.

This is the latest in a string of bouts involving name fighters added to Fight Pass preliminary broadcast since Eric Winter took last year as Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Fight Pass. Other such matchups have included Diego Sanchez's decision win over Jim Miller at UFC 196 and Dustin Poirier's win over Joseph Duffy at UFC 195
