Almeida vs. Pickett Set for UFC 189

 
Unbeaten bantamweight phenom Thomas Almeida, fresh off his Performance of the Night win over Yves Jabouin at UFC 186 on April 25, will look for his 20th victory without a loss when he takes on Brad Pickett at UFC 189 in Las Vegas on July 11.

Tickets for UFC 189, which features Jose Aldo's featherweight title defense against Conor McGregor and the welterweight title fight between Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald, are on sale now.

Pickett, owner of five post-fight bonuses over the course of his UFC career, will be returning to the bantamweight division after a three-fight stint at flyweight to battle Brazil's Almeida, who has dazzled in his two UFC wins over Jabouin and Tim Gorman.
