UFC officials have confirmed an exciting flyweight bout between two quickly rising prospects. Justin Scoggins and Dustin Ortiz have verbally agreed to scrap on the TUF 19 Finale card that’s slated for July 6 in Las Vegas.
The event will be headlined by the Frankie Edgar vs. BJ Penn trilogy fight, and will take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Scoggins (9-0) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Will Campuzano at UFC 171. The American Top Team product has won both of his UFC bouts, and looks to keep rising up the ranks in the shallow flyweight division.
Ortiz (13-3) earned a split decision win over Ray Borg at UFC on FOX 11 in Orlando to rebound from a split decision loss against former title challenger John Moraga. Ortiz is (2-1) in the UFC and looks to keep his momentum going with a win over the highly touted Scoggins.
