Newcomer Stewart Nicoll will make his promotional debut Aug. 17 vs. Jesus Aguilar at UFC 305. The event takes place at RAC Arena in Perth, Western Australia.

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

Australia’s Nicoll (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the region with seven finishes in eight pro fights. He’s built his name in Beatdown Promotions, a local fight company headed by former UFC fighter Damien Brown.

Aguilar (10-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) has won back-to-back fights vs. Shannon Ross and Mateus Mendonca since a loss to Tatsuro Taira in his promotional debut.
