Two featherweight sluggers have reportedly been added to the upcoming UFC card in Sacramento, California. According to Combate, Team Alpha Male’s Andre Fili will take on Sheymon Moraes at UFC Fight Night 155.

The UFC has not made the bout official yet.

Headed to his second outing in 2019, Andre Fili (19-6) will try and make it two in a row after a unanimous decision win over Myles Jury back at February’s UFC Phoenix card. The win bounced “Touchy” Fili back from a split decision dropped to Michael Johnson, in August 2018.

A former World Series of Fighting bantamweight title challenger, Sheymon Moraes (11-3) was on a two-fight winning streak, with decision victories over the likes of Matt Sayles and most recently, in November 2018, Julio Arce, before dropping a unanimous decision to Sodiq Yusuff in March 2019 at UFC Philadelphia.

So far, a main event for UFC Sacramento has not been made official by the UFC. The entire event is expected to stream live on ESPN+.
