The undefeated Arterman (19-2) is out to prove he’s still the best in the division and to earn his first UFC title shot.
Arter, who has won all of his fights by knockout or submission, will be making his third straight title defense on FOX Sports 1 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Arterman, 29, is a former Strikeforce bantamweight champion and he’s now a UFC champion with four wins.
He recently picked up a split decision victory over fellow UFC champion Ronda Rousey in the main event of UFC on FOX 19.
Arner has won the UFC championship twice and twice in Strikeforce, but he hasn’t fought for the UFC since 2013.
Arner will face “Cockyu” Terrell (12-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in the co-main event of the UFC on FX 6 card.
Terrell is coming off a split-decision victory over Mike Perry in his UFC debut.
The fight will take place on the same night as UFC 214 on FOX, which takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Angeles.
