Ige will take on Movsar Evloev in a featherweight fight set for the UFC's June 4 event, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Ige has been in a bit of a slump recently, losing three of his last four fights. All three of those losses have via decision, while his lone win during that stretch was a knockout victory over Gavin Tucker that took just 22 seconds to achieve. Evloev, on the other hand, has never lost in his 15 professional fights, including five with the UFC.

Crushing defeat at UFC 269
FeatherweightUFC
December 11, 2021
Ige lost to Josh Emmett via unanimous decision (27-30, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC 269 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Ige fought considerably better than the scorecards would you lead you to believe. In fact, there's a definite argument to be made that he deserved the decision. It didn't start well for Ige. He was knocked down by Emmett early in Round 1 and did well to survive the flurry. Ige completely turned the tide in the second frame, landing the much cleaner and harder strikes throughout the duration of the round. The third frame was quite even, with a case to be made for both men. It was actually quite a strong effort from Ige considering how poorly it began, but it still resulted in his third loss in his past four fights dating back to July 2020. The featherweight division is so deep that the 30-year-old Hawaii native finds himself in unquestioned must-win territory his next time out.
Will take on Emmett
FeatherweightUFC
October 22, 2021
Ige will face Josh Emmett at UFC 269 in a featherweight event on Dec. 11, according to Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com.
ANALYSIS
Ige will look to get back on track after dropping a unanimous decision to Chan Sung Jung in the main event of June's UFC Vegas 29 event. He is 8-2 over his last 10 fights, but he has been struggling on primetime. Now he'll have another shot at redemption since he dropped his previous event -- via unanimous decision against Chan Sung Jung.
Routed by Chan Sung Jung
FeatherweightUFC
June 19, 2021
Ige lost to Chan Sung Jung via unanimous decision (47-48, 46-49, 46-49) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was another showcase spot for Ige and another case in which he struggled mightily. Baffled by the size and multi-faceted game of Jung, Ige was overwhelmed in every single aspect of this fight. It wasn't as close as the scorecards would lead you to believe. Ige's toughness is never in doubt and it wasn't here, but his complete inability to get anything going on the feet -- where he shines -- allowed the Zombie to to force this fight wherever he wanted. He dragged Ige to the mat with ease on multiple occasions and kept him pinned there. It's difficult to say a 29-year-old fighter with a 8-2 record in his past ten fights is at a crossroads, but Ige's difficulties in big spots are highly concerning. He competes in a loaded featherweight division, and while he's been impressive, we've seen nothing to this point to lead us to believe he is on par with the top fighters at 145 pounds.
Will headline UFC Fight NIght
FeatherweightUFC
April 3, 2021
Ige is expected to headline UFC Fight Night against Chan Sung Jung on June 19, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Ige made a statement in his previous bout on March 13 by defeating Gavin Tucker via KO in Round 1. He subsequently publically called for this matchup, as both he and Sung Jung are climbing the ranks in the featherweight division. However, the latter is coming off a loss in October, which was followed by a procedure on his knee. The eventual winner of this matchup is considered to be a strong candidate to face former champion Max Holloway.
Makes statement with quick KO
FeatherweightUFC
March 13, 2021
Ige defeated Gavin Tucker via KO (punch) at 0:22 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Ige is known as a volume over power guy, but you wouldn't know that from this performance. He sat back and fired off a counter right hand that turned Tucker's lights out. Referee Mike Beltran was right on top of it but there simply wasn't anything for him to do as Tucker was clearly finished. It's a massive statement from Ige on the heels of his main event loss to Calvin Kattar in his most recent bout last July. Ige is going to have to put together another string of solid efforts in order to enter the fringes of the title picture at 145 pounds, but this was as good of a start as possible to such a potential streak.
