Featherweights Billy Quarantillo and Herbert Burns will face off at a UFC Fight Night on July 17 to see who bounces back to the winning column, MMA Fighting has confirmed. Quarantillo broke the news on social media.

The UFC has yet to officially announce the card and its location.

Quarantillo (15-3) won his first three in the UFC after stopping Kamuela Kirk at Dana White’s Contender Series before losing a decision to Gavin Tucker in his most recent appearance in December 2020.

A former Ultimate Fighter contestant in 2015, Quarantillo was on an eight-fight winning streak with six finishes prior to his latest setback.

Burns (11-3) also entered the UFC through DWCS in 2019, tapping Darrick Minner with a triangle choke. Burns finished Nate Landwehr and Evan Dunham in his first two UFC appearances before a second-round loss to Daniel Pineda this past August.

The younger brother of welterweight contender Gilbert Burns was originally expected to return to the cage in early May, but postponed his return due to an injury.
