Former M-1 Challenge titleholder Movsar Evloev has his next UFC bout set, as he takes on Mike Grundy at the upcoming Fight Night show in Shenzhen, China, on Aug. 31. The promotion announced the booking on Monday.

Evloev, who joined the UFC as a featherweight after reigning as the 135-pound king in Russia, defeated Seung Woo Choi via decision in his first Octagon appearance at UFC St. Petersburg earlier this year. Evloev holds a perfect 11-0 record with seven stoppage wins.

Grundy (12-1) was also victorious in his UFC debut, defeating Nad Narimani via second-round TKO after a 16-month layoff at UFC London in March. The English featherweight is riding a nine-fight winning streak.

UFC Shenzhen will take place at the Universiade Sports Centre in China and feature strawweight queen Jessica Andrade defending her titleagainst Weili Zhang in the main event.
