UFC Fight Night 118 takes place Oct. 21 at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The event streams on UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.
Wilson hasn’t seen action since UFC Fight Night 96 in October where he dropped a unanimous decision to Ion Cutelaba. It marked his second consecutive defeat after starting his career 7-0 and apparently prompted “Johnny Bravo” to change weight classes.
Piechota, meanwhile, becomes the latest Polish fighter to join the UFC roster. He’s unbeaten through 10 career fights and has managed to stop his opponent inside the distance in each of his wins. Piechota has already earned two knockout wins this year, both coming in a combined fight time of 69 seconds.
