Jake Ellenberger - Diego Sanchez

A pair of welterweights capable of delivering fireworks will be on display in Nashville on April 22.

Veteran Jake Ellenberger will meet up-and-coming Mike Perry at UFC Fight Night 108. The Los Angeles Daily News initially reported the fight Thursday night.

Ellenberger (31-12) has 19 career knockouts, including a first-round finish of Matt Brown last summer. The Kings MMA competitor is looking to rebound from a weird finish in his most recent fight, in which his foot got stuck in the cage in a TKO loss to Jorge Masvidal on Dec. 3.

Perry (9-1), meanwhile, looks to shake off his first career loss. The outspoken Flint, Mich. native won his first nine career fights via knockout before losing to Alan Jouban at UFC on FOX in Sacramento on Dec. 17.
