Andre Fili vs. Sodiq Yusuff slated for UFC’s Jan. 18 event

A featherweight bout between Andre Fili and Sodiq Yusuff is the latest addition to the UFC’s planned event on Jan. 18.

MMA Junkie confirmed the matchup between Fili (20-6 MMA, 8-5 UFC) and Yusuff (10-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) with a person close to the situation. The person wished to remain anonymous because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

The Jan. 18 show, expected to be UFC 246, doesn’t have an announced location yet, but is expected to take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims expected for ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+/UFC Fight Pass.

Fili, 29, has won four of his past five fights. “Touchy” is coming off a first-round knockout finish of Sheymon Moraes at UFC on ESPN+ 13 in July.

Yusuff, 26, is unbeaten in his past five fights including three-straight in the UFC, as well as a victory on Dana White’s Contender Series. His most recent performance saw “Super” beat Gabriel Benitez by first-round TKO at UFC 241 in August.

With the addition, the Jan. 18 lineup now includes:

  • Maycee Barber vs. Roxanne Modafferi
  • Drew Dober vs. Nasrat Haqparast
  • Grant Dawson vs. Chas Skelly
  • Maurice Greene vs. Aleksei Oleinik
  • Claudia Gadelha vs. Alexa Grasso
