UFC Fight Night 70 will serve as the finale for The Ultimate Fighter 4, but also has some pretty good fights set for the card already. And recently, another was confirmed for the event by one of the fighters himself. Hollywood, Florida will apparently be hosting a featherweight bout between number 14-ranked Hacran Dias and prospect Chas Skelly.

Dias posted confirmation of the bout on his Instagram account.

Dias (22-3-1, 2-2 UFC) has faced some very tough competition in the UFC thus far, winning bouts over Iuri Alcantara and (most recently) Darren Elkins, but has dropped bouts to Nik Lentz and Ricardo Lamas. All of his UFC fights to date have gone to decision.

Skelly (14-1, 3-1 UFC) has won three bouts in a row since dropping his UFC debut, most recently taking out Jim Alers by TKO in February.

UFC Fight Night 70 goes down June 27th and will be headlined by a middleweight bout between Lyoto Machida and Yoel Romero.
