It appears undefeated lightweight prospect Max Rohskopf is UFC-bound.

MMA Junkie today learned from multiple people with knowledge of the booking that Rohskopf (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has agreed to face Austin Hubbard (11-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 11 event at UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Those people requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

Bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

A Las Vegas resident, Rohskopf trains under grappling legend Robert Drysdale at Zenith Jiu-Jitsu. A former standout wrestler at North Carolina State University, Rohskopf made his professional MMA debut in February 2018 and has since kept his record unblemished through five outings, most recently with a 53-second submission win over Paulo Silva earlier this year under the Titan FC banner.

Meanwhile, Hubbard fights for the fourth time under the UFC banner, suffering decision losses to world-class grapplers Mark Madsen and Davi Ramos on either side of a decision win over Canadian lightweight Kyle Prepolec. Prior to his UFC run, Hubbard was the LFA lightweight champion.

Hubbard was initially expected to face Joe Solecki, who recently announced his withdrawal from the card “due to reasons beyond my control.”
