Sergey Spivak vs. Jared Vanderaa in the works for UFC 256

It seems Jared Vanderaa got what he wanted.

The Contender Series alumni is targeted to fight Sergey Spivak for his UFC debut on Dec. 12 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. MMA Junkie confirmed the news with sources after an initial report from MMA Fighting.

Vanderaa (11-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC) called for a bout with Spivak following his Contender Series victory over Harry Hunsucker on Wednesday, claiming Spivak dodged him in the regional circuit.

Vanderaa stopped Hunsucker in the first round to win a UFC contract. Vanderaa is 5-1 in his past six outings. The 28-year-old trains out of Team Quest.

Meanwhile, Spivak (11-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) last fought in August at UFC on ESPN+ 30, defeating Carlos Felipe via majority decision. With the victory, Spivak bounced back from a decision loss to Marcin Tybura in February.

Below is the updated lineup for UFC 256:

  • Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson – for women’s featherweight title
