Canadian Mike Malott to face Gilbert Urbina at UFC Fight Night in July

Canada’s Mike Malott will be back in the octagon in July.

Malott will take on Gilbert Urbina at UFC Fight Night on July 13.

The last time Malott was in the octagon was back at UFC 297 in Toronto on Jan. 20 when he lost to Neil Magny. Despite being in control through the first two rounds, Malott attempted to lock in a guillotine choke but Magny swept his leg and ended up on top, throwing big punches and eventually the referee called for the bell.

The loss left the 32-year-old from Burlington, Ont., disappointed with not being able to get the job done in front of the home crowd.

“Hey guys. I’m all right,” Malott said on his social media via MMA Mania. “I tried my best. I’m really sorry. I hope I’m going to make you guys proud. I’m a little disappointed, but I felt really good about this camp. No excuses, man, I felt really good. I felt good in the fight. I just wasn’t good enough tonight.

“I’m going to have to make some improvements, but I’m so, so touched by all the support I’ve gotten by all the fans. It really means a lot to me. I love you guys. I want to do my country proud. Thank you to my friends and family, my team, sponsors and everybody who’s supported me. I’ll be back. I’ll make you guys proud again. Thank you.”

Malott joined the UFC through the Contender Series where he had a perfect 3-0 record.
