A pair of undefeated light heavyweights are slated for a matchup at UFC 199 in June, as MMAFighting.com reports that Henrique Frank Waisten will make his UFC debut against Jonathan Wilson.

Brazil’s Waisten, nicknamed “Frankenstein,” brings a 10-0 career mark into his debut, with all ten of his wins coming by (T)KO. That includes a second round KO over UFC vet Ildemar Alcantara in his most recent fight in January.

The 26-year-old will now take on Wilson, who made a successful UFC debut of his own last August. “Johnny Bravo” knocked out Chris Dempsey in that fight, his sixth career stoppage win in seven career fights.

UFC 199 hits The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on June 4, headlined by the UFC Middleweight Championship rematch between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman.
