“The Boston Finisher” will return to action in April.

Calvin Kattar is slated to take on Renato Moicano in a featherweight clash at the UFC 223 event in Brooklyn, NY, on April 7, the promotion announced following a report by Newsday. The pay-per-view card will take place at the Barclays Center.

Kattar (18-2) enters the cage riding a 10-fight winning streak, including UFC wins over Andre Fili, via decision, and a third-round finish against Shane Burgos earlier this year.

Moicano (11-1-1) suffered his first loss as a professional fighter in his last fight, tapping against Brian Ortega in July. Prior to this defeat, the Brazilian talent was 3-0 in the UFC with wins over Tom Niinimaki, Zubaira Tukhugov and Jeremy Stephens.

UFC 223 will be headlined by Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title, while Rose Namajunas defends her strawweight gold in a rematch with Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the co-main event.
