Briones (16-6-1), a former TUF: Latin America contestant, is 1-2 in the UFC, including a decision loss to current bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt. The 36-year-old fighter stopped his opponent in 14 of his 16 MMA wins.
UFC Fight Night 107 will also feature a lightweight clash between Marc Diakiese and Teemu Packalen, a welterweight bout featuring Tom Breese and Oluwale Bamgbose, Bradley Scott vs. Scott Askham in the middleweight division, and a rematch between light heavyweights Darren Stewart and Francimar Barroso.
