UFC Louisville announced with 13 fights already booked for the card

The UFC’s upcoming return to Louisville, Ky. has 13 fights booked already with a main event still to be determined.

The event, which takes place at the KFC Yum Center on June 8, serves as the UFC’s first card in Louisville in 13 years with the last card there headlined by Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann. While rumors have swirled about the headliner for the upcoming UFC Louisville card, nothing is official just yet.

In the meantime, the promotion announced a number of matchups booked for the card including two-time light heavyweight title challenger Dominick Reyes making his long awaited return to action against Dustin Jacoby.

A top contender at 205 pounds for most of his career, Reyes looks to bounce back after dropping his past four fights in a row, including a knockout loss to Ryan Spann in his most recent outing in 2022. Following a long layoff, Reyes returns in June to face the experienced kickboxer Jacoby, who also looks to get back on track after he fell to Alonzo Menifield this past December.

Teen sensation Raul Rosas Jr. also returns on the UFC Louisville card for his rebooked matchup against Ricky Turcios. The bantamweights were originally scheduled to meet back in February but Rosas fell ill just before walking to the octagon so the fight was scrapped.

Now they’ll clash in June instead.

Veteran lightweight Thiago Moises also returns on the card as he faces Ludovit Klein while recent Ultimate Fighter winner Brad Katona takes on Jesse Butler at 135 pounds.
