A clash of top featherweight prospects is headed to Brooklyn.

Renato Moicano will meet Calvin Kattar at UFC 223 on April 7 at Barclays Center, Newsday's Mark La Monica reports.

The 28-year-old Moicano kicked off his promotional stint with three straight victories, but now aims to get back in the win column after Brian Ortega handed him his first career defeat with a third-round submission at UFC 214 in July.

Kattar, 29, debuted with a unanimous verdict over Andre Fili in Doo Ho Choi's stead on the same bill, then scored his first stoppage in over seven years in his native Massachusetts at UFC 220, taking the event's Fight of the Night with third-round TKO of Shane Burgos.

The April card features a clash between interim lightweight titleholder Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event, and a strawweight championship rematch between reigning queen Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the co-headliner.
