UFC Austin will see a welterweight matchup between Brian Camozzi and Geoff Neal; a bantamweight bout between Sarah Moras and Lucie Pudilova; and a flyweight fight between Joby Sanchez and Roberto Sanchez.

Camozzi who is the brother of former UFC middleweight Chris Camozzi, seeks his first victory as he is 0-2 in his third appearance for the promotion.
A former cast member of The Ultimate Fighter, Moras is coming off an first-round submission of Ashlee Evans-Smith at UFC 215 in her first fight since 2015. Pudilova of the Czech Repulic, is coming off a decision win over Ji Yeon Kim in her last fight.
Joby Sanchez, a JacksonWink competitor, is in the midst of a four-fight win streak, which includes two victories on the aforementioned Tuesday Night Contender’s Series. Houston’s Roberto Sanchez is looking to rebound from a submission loss to Joseph Morales in his UFC debut.
The Feb. 18 card will be headlined by Donald Cerrone vs. Yancy Medeiros.
