Colton Smith vs Carlos Diego Ferreira on tap for UFC Fight Night event on June 28 in San Antonio

Colton Smith gets another crack at UFC superstardom. Can he make the most of it?

It's now or never.

Despite winning The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 16, Colton Smith (3-3) could be one loss away from exiting stage left.

That's because the Army vet drew snake eyes in his 2013 combat sports campaign, getting knocked out by Robert Whittaker at UFC 160, before Michael Chiesa strangled him into submission at UFC Fight Night 31.

In front of the troops, no less.

But all hope is not lost and the Virginian can get the ship righted in a 155-pound match up opposite Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debutant Carlos Diego Ferreira, who gets his first-crack at the big time at the UFC "Fight Night" event on FOX Sports 1 and Fight Pass on June 28, 2014, inside AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

UFC announced the bout earlier today

Ferreira (9-0) captured the Legacy FC title after making a mockery of the regional mixed martial arts (MMA) scene. While the Texan has yet to record a win by way of knockout or technical knockout, he does own five straight submission victories.

Fun fight.

Aside from the featherweight headliner between Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens (more on that here), no other bouts have been announced for the San Antonio extravaganza. Expect that to change sooner rather than later.

Stay tuned.
