A featherweight clash between Felipe Arantes and Josh Emmett was added to UFC’s upcoming event in Gdansk, Poland, on Oct. 21, the promotion announced Friday.

Arantes (18-8-1, 2 no-contest) was scheduled to meet Luke Sanders at last week’s UFC Pittsburgh, but was forced out of the bout a day before the event due to illness. “Sertanejo” went 2-1 at 135 pounds, finishing Yves Jabouin and Jerrod Sanders before a decision defeat versus Erik Perez.

Emmett (11-1) looks to rebound from his first MMA loss to Desmond Green in April, when he lost via split decision. The Team Alpha Male fighter scored back-to-back decision wins over Jon Tuck and Scott Holtzman in his previous appearances as a lightweight inside the Octagon.

UFC Fight Night 118 is set to take place at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, and features a welterweight showdown between Donald Cerrone and Darren Till in the main event.
