The Fight Night show takes place in Las Vegas, but the promotion has yet to announce its headlining attraction.
Kasanganay (9-1) is coming off of a second-round submission win over Sasha Palatnikov, bouncing back from a loss to Joaquin Buckley and improving to 2-1 in the octagon since back-to-back decision victories on Dana White’s Contender Series.
Harris (16-4) fought around the world for the past few years before earning a contract with the UFC through White’s Looking For A Fight show in Abu Dhabi this past January, when he submitted Saygid Izagakhmaev at a UAE Warriors event.
Harris, the first Guyana-born fighter to ever compete in the UFC, won a “Performance of the Night” bonus for a first-round submission over Christian Aguilera in his octagon debut in May.
