England's Paul Sass will meet Matt Wiman at UFC Nottingham on September 29 at the Capital FM Arena.

The UFC confirmed on Monday the lightweight pair will meet on the main card, which is headlined by Stefan Struve v Stipe Miocic. Brad Pickett and Andy Ogle are also confirmed to feature.

UFC President Dana White said: "After looking so impressive in his last fight at UFC 146, unbeaten Liverpool lightweight Paul Sass steps up to fight talented veteran Matt Wiman, who has won four of his last five fights."

Sass won Submission of the Night honours in his last outing when he tapped out Jacob Volkmann to extend his unbeaten run.

The UFC is returning to the UK on September 29 at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham. Tickets are available from www.capitalfmarena.com, www.ufc.com and the Capital FM Arena box office.
