Sean Soriano will look to get the bad taste out of his mouth from a poor UFC debut.

The Blackzilians prospect meets Estevan Payan at FOX UFC Saturday on April 19 in Orlando, the UFC announced Thursday. Soriano is coming off a second-round submission loss to Tatsuya Kawajiri last month in Singapore.

Soriano (8-1) is just 24 years old and a possible future star. He has finished six of his eight pro wins and the Kawajiri loss was the first of his career. Soriano is a strong striker.

Payan (14-5, 1 NC) is a veteran coming off two straight losses, the latest a third-round knockout against Robbie Peralta in December. Payan was actually winning that fight before getting knocked out, but this will be a pivotal fight in his career. Before the losing streak, the 31-year-old was unbeaten in eight fights.
