A potential slugfest at light heavyweight is lined up for a UFC Fight Night card on February 26th.
Cutelaba (16-6-1, 1 NC) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Devin Clark, just his second win on points in his entire MMA career. The Moldovan battled to a draw with Dustin Jacoby in the preceding bout, and typically his losses have come to elite competition such as Magomed Ankalaev or current champion Glover Teixeira.
Spann (19-7) was swiftly dispatched and submitted by Anthony Smith at UFC Vegas 37 in September. The former LFA light heavyweight champion boasts a 5-2 record inside the Octagon, including stoppage victories over Sam Alvey, Devin Clark, and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
The UFC’s February 26th show is headlined by a pivotal lightweight bout between Beneil Dariush and Islam Makhachev.
