Lightweights Jamie Mullarkey and Khama Worthy will look to get back to the win column in March.

Mullarkey (12-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) faces Worthy (16-7 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at UFC 260, which takes place on Saturday, March 27 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

A person with knowledge of the matchup confirmed the booking but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. MMA Fighting was the first to report the news.

Worthy burst into the UFC scene in August 2019 when he scored a “Performance of the Night” TKO of Devonte Smith at UFC 241. He followed up that victory with a third-round submission of Luis Pena at UFC on ESPN 12 in June, before seeing his seven-fight winning streak snapped at the hands of Ottman Azaitar in September.

Having lost two in a row, Australia’s Mullarkey will be in search of his first UFC win at the third time of asking. After engaging in a “Fight of the Night” decision loss to Brad Riddell in his promotional debut at UFC 243, Mullarkey suffered a close decision loss to Fares Ziam in October.

With the addition, the latest UFC 260 lineup now includes:

  • Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou – for heavyweight title
  • Alexander Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega – for featherweight title
  • Jimmy Crute vs. Anthony Smith
  • Modestas Bukauskas vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk
  • Hannah Goldy vs. Jessica Penne
  • Vicente Luque vs. Tyron Woodley
  • Thomas Almeida vs. Sean O’Malley
  • Blagoy Ivanov vs. Marcin Tybura
