On Tuesday, officials announced a bantamweight bout between Salmon and Randy Costa for the upcoming UFC on ESPN 6 card at TD Garden in on Oct. 18.

Fighting out of Massachusetts, Costa went 4-0 in the Cage Titans FC promotion to begin his career before losing via second-round submission to Brandon Davis, which also happened at 236. The 25-year-old has never gone to a decision.

on 6 is scheduled to be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Chris Weidman and Dominick Reyes.
