Nate Diaz, the lightweight winner on season five of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series, will lock horns with Kurt Pellegrino at UFC Fight Night 13 on April 2 in Broomfield, Colo.
Sources within Diaz's camp announced his addition to the already stacked card earlier this week.
Unbeaten in three UFC appearances, Diaz (8-2, 3-0 UFC) last competed at UFC Fight Night 12 in January, when he submitted former Ring of Fire lightweight champion Alvin Robinson with a triangle choke 3:39 into their bout. A Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt trained under Cesar Gracie, the 22-year-old Diaz has reeled off seven wins in eight fights — the lone defeat a submission loss to Hermes Franca in a World Extreme Cagefighting match in October 2006.
Pellegrino (11-3, 3-2 UFC), a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, will enter the lightweight tilt with victories in four of his past five fights. He stopped former King of the Cage lightweight titleholder Alberto Crane on strikes at UFC Fight Night 12. Eight of Pellegrino's 11 career wins have come by submission.
