DWCS targets Joe Lowry vs. Nikolas Motta for Nov. 10 lineup in Las Vegas

A lightweight fight between a former CFFC champion and current CFFC champion is in the works for Dana White’s Contender Series 35 in Las Vegas.

Lightweights Joe Lowry and Nikolas Motta will square off Nov. 10 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas with a potential UFC contract on the line.

Multiple people with knowledge of the matchup recently informed MMA Junkie of the booking, but asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

Lowry (9-1) competed on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2018 and lost by first-round knockout to Devonte Smith. Shortly after the fight, Lowry was involved in a serious car accident that left him injured and unable to train for months. In August, Lowry returned to MMA action and picked up a first-round TKO over Piankhi Zimmerman at CFFC 83.

An alum of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, Season 4,” Motta (11-3) has won four of his most recent five fights. The current CFFC lightweight champion, Motta has six knockouts in 11 victories.

With the addition, the Nov. 10 lineup includes:

  • Mariusz Ksiazkiewicz vs. Mario Sousa
  • Stephanie Frausto vs. Luana Pinheiro
  • Joe Lowry vs. Nikolas Motta
