ufc fight night 43

Featherweights Charles Oliveira and Hatsu Hioki will head to New Zealand this June, as the two have been added to UFC Fight Night: Marquardt vs. Te Huna.

Set for June 28 from the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand, the card features a main event between Nate Marquardt and James Te Huna. The entire card is expected to stream on UFC Fight Pass.

Oliveira (17-4) has posted a 5-4 record inside the Octagon. He is coming off a submission victory over Andy Ogle, which comes on the heels of back-to-back losses vs. Cub Swanson and former UFC champion Frankie Edgar.

Hioki (27-7-2) is an even 3-3 with the promotion. He snapped a three-fight losing skid by besting Ivan Menjivar earlier this year.

Marquardt-Te Huna and Oliveira-Hioki are the only bouts announced to date for the card. Tatame first confirmed the fight.
