Unbeaten Niko Price will put his 8-0 mark on the line this month at UFC 207 when he takes on Brandon Thatch.
Price is replacing Sabah Homasi (11-6), who bowed out of what would have been his second UFC fight recently with an injury.
Prior to signing with the UFC, Price scored wins under the Fight Time Promotions banner in Florida in all eight of his fights. That includes six first round finishes and seven overall.
Thatch (11-4) sports a 2-3 Octagon mark, earning wins in his first two fights before three straight losses at the hands of Benson Henderson, Gunnar Nelson and Siyar Bahadurzada.
UFC 207 takes place December 30 from Las Vegas with both bantamweight belts on the line. Amanda Nunes defends vs. Ronda Rousey and Dominick Cruz does the same vs. Cody Garbrandt.
