Drew Fickett and Keita Nakamura
Welterweights Drew Fickett (27-5) and Keita Nakamura (13-1-2) will fight at UFC Fight Night 9 on April 5 at The Pearl in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to UFC.com.

Both fighters will look to get back on the winning track after losing their most recent bouts at UFC Fight Night 7 in December.

Fickett is a UFC veteran with six fights in the Octagon (3-3) since making his debut in 2005. He most recently lost a hard-fought unanimous decision to Karo Parisyan (16-4).

With other fights against Josh Burkman (loss), Josh Koscheck (win), Josh Neer (win) and Nick Diaz (loss), Fickett has established himself as a dangerous opponent against some of the stiffest competition in the division.

He also holds notable wins over other current UFC fighters such as Edwin DeWees and Kenny Florian. Fickett is just wildly inconsistent.

Nakamura is a Japanese professional Shooto fighter who made his UFC debut against Brock Larson at the end of 2006. "K-Taro" was also on the wrong end of a unanimous decision and will look to pick up his first UFC win against Fickett.
