Newcomer Randy Brown meets Canada’s Matt Dwyer at UFC on FOX 18

A stellar welterweight matchup has now been made official!

Randy Brown (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), an undefeated 170-pound prospect, has signed with the UFC and is slated to meet Matt Dwyer (8-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at UFC on FOX 18.

The matchup was revealed on the newest edition of “Lookin’ for a Fight,” a Web series starring UFC President Dana White.

UFC on FOX 18 takes place Jan. 30 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Brown caught the eye of UFC brass during ROC 53, where he scored a first-round knockout victory over Robert Plotkin on Nov. 20. It marked the 25-year-old Jamaican fighter’s sixth stoppage in six career wins, all of which come via before the third round.

Brown will have to impress when he faces British Columbia’s Dwyer, a 26-year-old Canadian who’s just 1-2 in the UFC but has picked up two fight-night bonuses. After a head-kick knockout loss to Albert Tumenov in his UFC debut, Dwyer scored a superman-punch knockout of William Macario for a “Performance of the Night” award, and he then dropped a decision to Alan Jouban in a “Fight of the Night” effort.

The latest UFC on FOX 18 card includes:

Anthony Johnson vs. Ryan Bader
Jake Ellenberger vs. Tarec Saffiedine
Andrew Holbrook vs. Sage Northcutt
Josh Barnett vs. Ben Rothwell
