Grant Dawson will draw a stern test in his lightweight debut. Dawson (16-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) faces Leonardo Santos (18-3-1 MMA, 7-0-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night on March 20, which does not currently have a publicly announced location or venue.

The Dana White’s Contender Series graduate has kicked off his UFC tenure at 4-0, most recently out-grappling Nad Narimani in July
