Randy Brown has found another fight.

“Rude Boy” will face Michael Graves in a welterweight bout at UFC on Fox 19 on April 16 in Tampa, Florida. The fight has been verbally agreed upon pending signed bout agreements.

Brown won his promotional debut in January with a decision victory over Matt Dwyer at UFC on Fox 18 in Newark, New Jersey. The former Ring of Combat welterweight champion is undefeated in seven professional fights and was hoping to keep his momentum going after the win.

“I don’t really do camps, I’ve just been training. Camp is life and life is camp,” said Brown after his win last month. “Ideally I’d like to maybe take a month off and chill out a little bit because I’ve been at this for so long, but it doesn’t matter.”

While Queens’ Brown was discovered on the UFC’s new web series, “Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight,” his opponent made his name on the UFC’s traditional reality show, “The Ultimate Fighter.” Graves (5-0) competed for American Top Team on season 21 of the show before making his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 21 finale last July, where he defeated Vicente Luque via unanimous decision.
