Duran’s agency, Iridium Sports Agency, made the fight announcement via its official Facebook page Monday night. In addition, Duran signed a new contract with the UFC consisting of five fights – the first fight being against the Japanese fighter on March 3.
MMAWeekly.com originally reported that Mizugaki was slated to fight Francisco Rivera on the Versus card, but an undisclosed injury during training recently forced Rivera off the event. MMAJunkie.com was the first to report on Rivera’s withdrawal.
Duran (7-2-1) has spent some time fighting for the King of the Cage promotion in addition to some smaller Southern California promotions, such as All-Star Boxing and Long Beach Fight Night. He’s currently on a four-fight winning streak with three of those four wins being finishes. The Redlands, Calif. native started his professional career in 2006.
