Get ready, Poland. Brian Kelleher is coming.

Bantamweight Kelleher (17-8 MMA, 1-1 UFC), who famously enraged all of Brazil in his UFC debut, is now taking his show to Europe, where he’ll meet Poland’s own Damian Stasiak (10-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC).

UFC officials formally announced the contest, which was previously reported by multiple outlets.

Featuring a welterweight headliner between Donald Cerrone and Darren Till, UFC Fight Night 118 takes place Oct. 21 at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The entire card streams live on UFC Fight Pass.

Kelleher made his promotional debut in June, travling to Brazil and scoring a “Performance of the Night” submission of Brazil’s Iuri Alcantara. Kelleher then returned to action just seven weeks later in an effort to fight in his home state of New York but was submitted by Marlon Vera in the opening round. “Boom” now looks to return to the win column fighting on the road.

Stasiak fights in his home country for the second time in his UFC run. He debuted at UFC Fight Night 64 in April 2015, losing a decision to Yaotzin Meza. Stasiak then bounced back with submission wins over Filip Pejic and Davey Grant but then suffered a submission loss to Pedro Munhoz this past May.

With the addition to the card, UFC Fight Night 118 now includes:

  • Donald Cerrone vs. Darren Till
  • Ramazan Emeev vs. Trevor Smith
  • Oskar Piechota vs. Jonathan Wilson
  • Dmitrii Smoliakov vs. Adam Wieczorek
  • Jan Blachowicz vs. Devin Clark
  • Brian Kelleher vs. Damian Stasiak
  • Andre Fili vs. Artem Lobov
  • Marcin Held vs. Teemu Packalen
  • Jodie Esquibel vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz
