Ben Nguyen vs Wilson Reis slated for UFC Adelaide

UFC Adelaide appears to have its first fight.

Brazilian outlet Combate is reporting that Ben Nguyen (16-7 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Wilson Reis (22-9 MMA, 6-5 UFC) will square of when the UFC returns to Adelaide in December.

Nguyen is currently ranked number 11 in the official UFC rankings and was on a two-fight winning streak before losing to Jussier Formiga by rear-naked choke at UFC 221 in Perth.

Nguyen made his UFC debut during the promotions maiden voyage to Adelaide in 2015 where he won by first-round TKO. He will be hoping for a similar result when he takes on former flyweight title challenger Wilson Reis.

Reis is on a three-fight losing skid since failing in his title bid against Demetrious Johnson in April of last year. He has since gone on to lose against Henry Cejudo and John Moraga.

UFC Adelaide will take place on December 2nd (AEST) and will take pace at the Adelaide Entertainment Center.

No other fights have been announced at this stage.
