Mark Madsen will try to continue the perfect start to his career at UFC 248.

The former Olympic silver medalist will try to improve to 10-0 with a win over Austin Hubbard in a lightweight contest at the T-Mobile Arena on March 7 in Las Vegas, according to UFC officials on Saturday.

MMA Junkie was the first to break the news.

Hubbard (11-3, 1-1 in the UFC) is coming off his first career UFC win this past September. He earned a unanimous decision win against Kyle Prepolec at UFC Vancouver.

UFC strawweight champion Weili Zhang will square off against Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the main event.
