JP Buys will make his octagon debut alongside his wife next month.
The event is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
Buys enters his first promotional bout on the heels of a five-fight finish streak. “Young Savage” began his impressive run after a second-round TKO loss to Joby Sanchez on Dana White’s Contender Series in August 2017. The Fortis MMA standout got his second DWCS opportunity this past November and submitted Jacob Silva in the first round to earn a contract.
Silva will be looking for his first UFC win in four tries. The 30-year-old was stopped by Khalid Taha at UFC 243—which has since been overturned to a no contest after Taha was suspended following a positive drug test—and was on the wrong side of decision losses to David Dvorak and Tagir Ulanbekov.
