UFC adds Terrance McKinney vs. Erick Gonzalez to Aug. 6 event

By Farah Hannoun

Lightweight prospects will look to get back to the win column when they square off in August.

Terrance McKinney (12-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) meets Erick Gonzalez (14-6 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night on Aug. 6, which doesn’t yet have a publicly known venue or location.

Two people with knowledge of the booking confirmed the matchup to MMA Junkie on Thursday but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

McKinney will aim to rebound after a hot start to his UFC career. The 27-year-old needed just seven seconds to put his name on the map when he starched Matt Frevola at UFC 263 and followed it up with another first-round finish in February when he submitted Fares Ziam. McKinney took a big opportunity when he made a 14-day turnaround to face Drew Dober on short notice at UFC Fight Night 203 in March, but was ultimately stopped in Round 1 after almost finishing Dober early.

Meanwhile, Gonzalez will be in search of his first octagon win. The Combate Americas veteran suffered a knockout loss to Jim Miller in his promotional debut this past October at UFC Fight Night 195 and was scheduled to face Devonte Smith in March, before having to withdraw due to a foot injury.

With the addition, the Aug. 6 lineup includes:

  • Thiago Santos vs. Jamahal Hill
  • Vicente Luque vs. Geoff Neal
  • Miranda Granger vs. Cory McKenna
  • Stephanie Egger vs. Mayra Bueno Silva
  • Erick Gonzalez vs. Terrance McKinney
