A featherweight bout has just been added to the UFC 230 card taking place in New York City at the historic Madison Square Garden.
According to Newsday 26-year old Jason Knight will square off against Jordan Rinaldi (30) in a grudge matchup on November the 3rd. Both fighters confirmed the meeting on their social media accounts.
Knight began his UFC career at 4-1 but is on a three fight losing streak, including a split-decision loss at UFC Liverpool this past May to Makwan Amirkhani. (His overall MMA record now stands at 20-5.) Meanwhile Rinaldi has only had three UFC appearances with one victory, and is coming off a first round TKO loss to Gregor Gillespie in a fight from January.
