Multiple sources confirmed the matchup when speaking to MMA Fighting on Thursday. The fight was initially reported by reporter Walter Salcido on Twitter.
Haqparast was originally expected to compete a week later on Feb. 19, but an injury to opponent John Makdessi forced a change to the fight. Now Haqparast will face Green instead, as he seeks to get back in the win column following a decision loss to Dan Hooker in his last outing this past September.
Prior to that setback, Haqparast had earned back-to-back wins over Rafa Garcia and Alexander Munoz.
As for Green, he will look to continue the momentum he built following arguably one of his most impressive performances to date after he demolished former UFC title contender Al Iaquinta with a first-round knockout at UFC 268.
