UFC 269 adds featherweight matchup between Dan Ige and Josh Emmett

By MMA Junkie Staff | October 21, 2021 10:41 pm ET Follow @MMAjunkie The last pay-per-view of 2021 somehow continues to keep getting better. The already-stacked UFC 269, which takes place on Dec. 11 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, has added another fantastic matchup in the featherweight division as Dan Ige will face Josh Emmett. MMA Junkie confirmed the booking with sources who have knowledge of the match-up following an initial report from BJPenn.com. Ige (15-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) will look to close out his year on a high note and rebound from a loss to Chan Sung Jung in the main event of June’s UFC on ESPN 25. He started his year off with an impressive first-round knockout of Gavin Tucker at UFC Fight Night 187. Emmett (16-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) will step into the cage for the first time in over 17 months. He was last in action against Shane Burgos at UFC on ESPN 11, a bout he won by unanimous decision. If successful at UFC 269, Emmett will extend his current win streak to four in a row. With the addition, the current UFC 269 lineup includes: Charles Oliveira vs. Dustin Poirier – for lightweight title Amanda Nunes vs. Julianna Pena – for women’s bantamweight title Leon Edwards vs. Jorge Masvidal Cody Garbrandt vs Kai Kara-France Sean O’Malley vs. Raulian Paiva Geoff Neal vs Santiago Ponzinibbio Dominick Cruz vs. Pedro Munhoz Dricus Du Plessis vs. Andre Muniz Maycee Barber vs. Erin Blanchfield Alex Perez vs. Matt Schnell Ryan Hall vs. Darrick Minner Priscila Cachoeira vs. Gillian Robertson Randy Costa vs. Tony Kelley Josh Emmett vs. Dan Ige Gallery Photos: Dan Ige through the years view 71 images Gallery Josh Emmett def.
