The UFC is rebooking a lightweight affair between Austin Hubbard and Joe Solecki at UFC’s Aug. 22 event.
First reported by Marcel Dorff of MMA DNA, the bout is slated to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. Hubbard and Solecki were previously scheduled to meet at UFC on ESPN 11 on June 20, but Solecki was forced to withdraw for an unknown reason.

Hubbard remained on the card, earning a second-round TKO after Max Rohskopf never came off the stool to between rounds two and three.
Solecki most recently earned a UFC debut win, defeating long-time veteran Matt Wiman by unanimous decision at UFC on ESPN 7 in December 2019. He is unbeaten in four-straight bouts, including a first-round submission victory against James Wallace on Dana White’s Contender Series in July 2019.
The event is headlined by bantamweights Frankie Edgar and Pedro Munhoz.
