Valter Walker, brother of Johnny Walker, set (again) for UFC debut

Valter Walker has his UFC debut set – again.

Approximately seven months after his promotional debut was initially scheduled, Walker (11-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will finally make his first walk to the UFC cage on April 6 vs. Lukasz Brzeski (8-4-1 MMA, 0-3 UFC).

Both fighters recently confirmed the booking on social media after Walker’s coach, Gor Azizyan, announced it on Instagram.

While it’s unclear why it was canceled, Walker’s debut was initially scheduled for September vs. Jake Collier. However, Walker pulled out in the weeks leading up to the event.

Walker, 26, is the brother of Johnny Walker and a former Titan FC heavyweight champion. He has seven finishes including six TKOs and one submission in seven professional wins.

Brzeski, 31, looks to make the fourth time the charm. After a UFC contract-earning win on Dana White’s Contender Series (that was later overturned to a no contest due to his failed drug test) in 2021, Brzeski lost consecutive decisions against Martin Buday and Karl Williams before he was finished with strikes by Waldo Cortes-Acosta.

With the addition, the UFC Fight Night lineup for April 6 includes:

  • Marvin Vettori vs. Brendan Allen

  • Lukasz Brzeski vs. Valter Walker
