Dustin Poirier has been fantastic since moving back up to the lightweight division, and he’ll look to score his fourth straight win in the division this June when he takes on Bobby Green at UFC 199.
The UFC announced the fight on Monday.
Poirier is on a 6-1 run in his last seven fights, with his sole loss coming in his final featherweight bout against that division’s current champion, Conor McGregor.
Green, meanwhile, finally makes his return to the cage for the first time in over a year and a half. The Strikeforce veteran had been on an eight-fight winning streak into his fight with Edson Barboza in November of 2014, and that was snapped when he dropped a decision in that fight. Green had two scheduled bouts in 2015, but injuries took him out of both.
The June 4 card takes place from The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., and will be headlined by title rematches in Luke Rockhold vs. Chris Weidman II and Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber III.
