Felipe Arantes vs. Josh Emmett added to UFC Fight Night 118 in Poland

The upcoming UFC Fight Night 118 event in Poland has a new addition.

Officials today announced a fight between Felipe Arantes (18-8-1 MMA, 5-4-1 UFC)  and Josh Emmett (11-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC), though a weight class wasn’t given.

UFC Fight Night 118 takes place Oct. 21 at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The event streams live on UFC Fight Pass, though the full fight card and bout order haven’t been finalized.

Arantes, a 29-year-old Brazilian, is a former featherweight who’s recently competed at bantamweight. After dropping down to 135 pounds, he posted submissions wins over Yves Jabouin (to pick up a “Performance of the Night” bonus) and Jerrod Sanders. However, in his most recent bout, he suffered a split-decision defeat to Erik Perez. A subsequent fight with Luke Sanders was canceled two days before the event after Arantes fell ill.

He now meets Emmett, who’s recently fought at lightweight. The 32-year-old Team Alpha Male fighter and former West Coast Fighting champion defeated Jon Tuck and Scott Holtzman in his first two UFC fights, but in his most recent appearance, he suffered a split-decision defeat to Desmond Green.

The latest UFC Fight Night 118 card 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
  • Warlley Alves vs. Jim Wallhead
  • Brian Kelleher vs. Damian Stasiak
