A pair of featherweights will look to rebound in May.

Kai Kamaka (8-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) takes on TJ Brown (14-8 MMA, 0-2 UFC) in an event which does not yet have an official venue or location.

Two people with knowledge of the matchup recently confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie but asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. Reporter Rob DeMello was first to report the news.

Hawaii’s Kamaka made good on his promotional debut when he outlasted Tony Kelley in a “Fight of the Night” effort at UFC 252 in August. In his past outing in November, Kamaka saw his six-fight winning streak snapped at the hands of Jonathan Pearce in a second-round stoppage loss.

After earning a UFC contract on “Dana White’s Contender Series” in August 2019, Arkansas native Brown has dropped his first two UFC bouts to Jordan Griffin and most recently a unanimous decision to Danny Chavez in August.

With the addition, the May 1 lineup includes:

  • Damon Jackson vs. T.J. Laramie

  • TJ Brown vs. Kai Kamaka
