Misha Cirkunov vs. Patrick Cummins among three bouts added to UFC Fight Night 138 in Moncton

A trio of bouts have been added to October’s UFC Fight Night 138 lineup, including the return of a Canadian light heavyweight contender.

UFC officials today announced Misha Cirkunov (13-4 MMA, 4-2 UFC) will make his return to action at the event when he takes on Patrick Cummins (10-5 MMA, 6-5 UFC).

Another 205-pound bout between Ed Herman (23-13 MMA, 10-10 UFC) and Gian Villante (16-10 MMA, 6-7 UFC) is also set for the card, as well as a lightweight pairing between Thibault Gouti (12-4 MMA, 1-4 UFC) and Nasrat Haqparast (9-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

UFC Fight Night 138 takes place Oct. 27 at SMG Moncton in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. The event’s broadcast plans have not been announced, but main-card fights are likely to air on FS1 after prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Cirkunov, No. 12 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA light heavyweight rankings, began his UFC tenure with four consecutive wins, but now he’s sitting on back-to-back losses. The 31-year-old has been stopped in the first round by Glover Teixeira and Volkan Oezdemir in his past two contests.

He will hope to rebound against Cummins, 37, who was last seen losing a unanimous decision to Corey Anderson at UFC Fight Night 128 in April.

The latest UFC Fight Night 138 card now includes:

  • Volkan Oezdemir vs. Anthony Smith
  • Arjan Bhullar vs. Marcelo Golm
  • Andre Soukhamthath vs. Gavin Tucker
  • Misha Cirkunov vs. Patrick Cummins
  • Ed Herman vs. Gian Villante
  • Thibault Gouti vs. Nasrat Haqparast
