UFC have announced Steven ray will fight Leonardo Mafra Texeira at UFC Scotland on July 18 at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

On April 11 at UFC Fight Night in Krakow, Poland, proud Scottish native Ray claimed victory in his UFC debut with a dominant TKO stoppage in the second round against home favourite Marcin Bandel.

Ray (17-5) appeared to close in on victory late in the opening round with an arm-triangle-choke, but was unable to separate from his opponent’s half-guard, thus limiting the choke’s pressure; however, it wasn’t long into the second round before Ray secured the dominant position and rained down strikes to force the referee stoppage.

Texeira last fight was a win against cain carrizosa at UFC fight night Maia v LaFlare where he won via Unanimous decision.

Fighting in front of his own people will be a dream come true for Ray and if you want to witness this historic event then ticket information can be found here.
