A heated Flyweight fight is going down in April. confirmed today (Weds., Mar. 1, 2023) with multiple sources that Charles Johnson will fight Cody Durden on April 29, 2023, inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.

No main event has been announced for the ESPN+-streamed event at this time.

Johnson, 32, is turning around only one week removed from his split decision loss to Ode Osbourne at UFC Vegas 70. “InnerG” is 2-2 in UFC thus far, and by the time he enters the Octagon in April, he will have already fought three times in 2023.

Durden, 31, is riding a two-fight win streak since suffering his 58-second loss to Muhammad Mokaev. He is coming off a unanimous decision win over Carlos Mota in Oct. 2022 and, prior to that, finished J.P. Buys in a little more than one minute (watch highlights).

The two Flyweights have been jawing at each other on social media for several months, so there will be some bad blood when they finally meet inside the Octagon.

So far, the April 29 card looks like this:

  • Natan Levy vs. Pete Rodriguez
  • Journey Newson vs. Brian Kelleher
  • Marcos Rogério de Lima vs. Waldo Cortes-Acosta
  • Michał Oleksiejczuk vs. Caio Borralho
  • Cody Brundage vs. Rodolfo Vieira
  • Josh Quinlan vs. Ange Loosa
  • Charles Johnson vs. Cody Durden
