TORONTO – Winnipeg bantamweight Brad (Superman) Katona will take on American Matthew Lopez at UFC 231 in Toronto on Dec. 8.

It marks the first fight for Katona (8-0-0) since earning a unanimous decision over Jay Cucciniello in the final of “The Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated” reality TV show in July. That earned him a UFC contract.

The 26-year-old Katona, who has a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Manitoba, trains in Dublin at Conor McGregor’s gym.

The 31-year-old Lopez (10-4-0) is 2-3-0 in the UFC, losing to Alejandro Perez and Raphael Assuncao in his last two fights.

Canadians Elias Theodorou, Hakeem Dawodu, Chad Laprise and Olivier Aubin-Mercier have already been announced as fighting on the Toronto card.
