Terrance McKinney says he’s fighting Chris Duncan at UFC’s Oct. 14 show

Just a few weeks after he snapped a two-fight skid, Terrance McKinney has his next assignment.

The lightweight posted on Instagram late Monday to say he has booked a fight for the UFC’s Oct. 14 Fight Night card. McKinney (14-6 MMA, 4-3 UFC) said he’ll take on Chris Duncan (11-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) next month.

UFC officials have not yet formally announced the matchup, which will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Broadcast details have not been finalized, but the card will air or stream on ESPN and ESPN+.

After a five-fight winning streak, including stoppages in his first two UFC fights with a seven-second KO of Matt Frevola, McKinney was mired in a slump with three losses in four fights. But in August, he got back on track with an 85-second knockout of Mike Breeden. Now he’ll make a quick turnaround for his fourth fight of 2023.

Duncan, an American Top Team-based 30-year-old from Scotland, has won four straight. He got his UFC shot through Dana White’s Contender Series and has wins over Omar Morales and Yanal Ashmouz earlier this year.

With the addition, the UFC’s Oct. 14 lineup now includes:

  • Edson Barboza vs. Sodiq Yusuff

  • Irina Alekseeva vs. Melissa Dixon

  • Emily Ducote vs. Ashley Yoder

  • Jonathan Martinez vs. Adrian Yanez

  • David Dvorak vs. Tatsuro Taira

  • Viviane Araujo vs. Jennifer Maia

  • Heili Alateng vs. Rani Yahya

  • Marc-Andre Barriault vs. Michel Pereira

  • Christian Rodriguez vs. Cameron Saaiman

  • TJ Brown vs. Darren Elkins

  • Chris Duncan vs. Terrance McKinney
