As a professional, Kape will walk into the octagon with 16 of his 17 wins by way of finish, while his opponent holds 14 of his 17 wins by way of finish.
Bontorin (17-4-0, 1 NC) is coming off of a loss to Brandon Royval back in January. Before that, the 8th ranked flyweight defeated Matt Schnell via unanimous decision. The submission ace will look to get back in the win column come June and secure his 18th professional win.
UFC 275 will be held on June 11th at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. It will feature a light-heavyweight clash in the main event as Glover Teixeira attempts to defend his title against Jiri Prochazka. In the co-main event of the evening, flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko will look to make her 8th consecutive title defense against Taila Santos.
