A pair of lightweight will battle in Atlantic City as Edson Barboza will face Kevin Lee at the April 21st event.

Barboza had a three-fight winning streak snapped at the hands of Khabib Nurmagomedov in his last outing at UFC 219 last December.  Prior to that loss he has earned victories over Anthony Pettis, Gilbert Melendez and Beneil Dariush during his winning run.

The 32-year-old UFC veteran holds a 19-5 overall MMA record.

Lee saw his bid to earn the interim UFC lightweight title turned away by Tony Ferguson at UFC 216 in his last outing which took place at UFC 216 last October.

The 25-year-old won five straight fights leading into his interim title shot, defeating Efrain Escudero, Jake Matthews, Magomed Mustafaev, Francisco Trinaldo and most recently Michael Chiesa on a streak that began in April of 2016.

The Atlantic City card will be held at Boardwalk Hall.
