Featherweight finishers collide when Edson Barboza and Billy Quarantillo meet at a UFC Fight Night event on April 15.

MMA Fighting confirmed the booking Wednesday following an announcement on Quarantillo’s OnlyFans page.

Barboza (22-11) has struggled to regain his footing as a contender in recent years, losing seven of his past 10 bouts, but remains one of the most dangerous strikers in the UFC’s featherweight division.

The 36-year-old Brazilian holds a 2-3 record since dropping down to 145 pounds, sandwiching wins over Makwan Amirkhani and Shane Burgos between losses to Dan Ige, Giga Chikadze, and most recently Bryce Mitchell.

Quarantillo (17-4) has also fought to inconsistent results of late, splitting his past four contests, but rides into the matchup fresh off a Performance of the Night knockout of Alexander Hernandez in December.

The 34-year-old New Yorker has finished all but one of six victories under the Zuffa umbrella, with his only setbacks coming at the hands of Burgos and Gavin Tucker.
