Harbor High alum Quinn Mulhern will drop down a weight class to fight Ryan Couture in a preliminary bout at UFC 164 in Milwaukee, Wisc., on Aug. 31.
The fight was added to the card on Tuesday.
This will be Mulhern’s second fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship promotion. But it will be his first at the lightweight division.
Previously with Strikeforce, the former welterweight lost his UFC debut to Rick Story by technical knockout (punches) on March 16 at UFC 158.
Mulhern (18-3, 0-1 UFC) had won three straight fights prior to the first-round loss to Story.
Couture (6-2, 0-1 UFC) is also a former Strikeforce fighter. He, too, is coming off a loss in his UFC debut.
Couture had won four straight prior to losing to Ross Pearson by TKO (punches) in the second round at UFC on Fuel TV 9 on April 6.
Couture is the son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture.
We’ll have more on this fight later.
