Kazuki Tokudome hs been scheduled in to appear at UFC Fight Night 52 in Tokyo, Japan on September 20, 2014. He will take on debutant Johnny Case.

The bout was reported by Ariel Helwani on MMAFighting through sources close to the fight.

Tokudome won his debut with Cristiano Marcello, but since has gone two straight losses. The second of those was in in UFC’s prior Tokyo outing, a veritable war with ROAD FC Lightweight Champ Nam Yui-Chul that went the distance and was named the Fight of the Night.

Case fights under the tutelage of Myles Jury, who will be meeting Takanori Gomi on the same card. Case was first scheduled to make his UFC debut against Joe Ellenberger in June, but failed his medical exam and subsequently had eye surgery. He now rides a 7-fight win streak, with his most recent loss to the current WSOF Featherweight Champ Rick Glenn.
