Two veterans of the UFC middleweight division will square off April 30.
Two people with knowledge of the matchup recently informed MMA Junkie of the booking but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
Jotko (23-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) has won three of his past four fights with decision victories over Eryk Anders (unanimous), Marc-Andre Barriault (split), and most recently Misha Cirkunov (split). The solo loss in that stretch came against Sean Strickland by unanimous decision in May.
Meerschaert (34-14 MMA, 9-6 UFC) had a massive year in 2021, as he went three-for-three with as many wins by submission. Bartosz Fabinski, Makhmud Muradov, and Dustin Stoltzfus all fell victim to Meerschaert’s rear-naked choke.
With the addition the UFC Fight Night lineup for April 30 includes:
Cortney Casey vs. Antonina Shevchenko
Gina Mazany vs. Shanna Young
Francisco Figueiredo vs. Daniel da Silva
Mike Breeden vs. Natan Levy
Gabe Green vs. Yohan Lainesse
Jessica Penne vs. Luana Pinheiro
Rafael Alves vs. Jared Gordon
Carlos Candelario vs. Tatsuro Taira
Tristan Connelly vs. Darren Elkins
Krzysztof Jotko vs. Gerald Meerschaert
