Jotko will face Edmen Shahbazyan at UFC 244 in New York on Nov. 2, Farah Hannoun of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Jotko will have his hands full in this one as Shahbazyan remains undefeated after his last 10 fights, three of them coming under the UFC banner. The native of Poland has a two match win streak after losing three consecutive times throughout 2017 and 2018.
Scrapes by with split decision

Jotko defeated Marc-Andre Barriault via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 240 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
This fight was a messy clinchfest from minute one, as the two men both worked to get takedowns with little success. Jotko had a bit more success in the clinch, firing knees and uppercuts while routinely turning his opponent against the fence. Jotko showed off a nice wrestling game in his last fight against Alen Amedovski in April but was unable to get much going here, resulting in a fairly lackluster victory. Once considered a fighter to watch at middleweight, Jotko has yet to really regain his momentum after going on a three-fight losing streak, and it remains to be seen whether he can once again rise in the rankings. He improves to 21-4 in professional MMA as a result of the win.

Jotko will square off against Marc-Andre Barriault at UFC Edmonton on July 27.
ANALYSIS
Jotko's UFC career dates back to 2013, but he hit a bit of a rut in the past couple of years, losing three straight bouts, before finally getting back on track with a unanimous decision win over Alen Amedovski at UFC Fight Night 149. He will carry a three-inch reach and one-inch height advantage into an undercard match with Barriault, who is still looking for his first UFC victory following a debut loss to Andrew Sanchez.

Jotko defeated Alen Amedovski via unanimous decision (30-25, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Saint Petersburg.
ANALYSIS
This was a one sided fight for Jotko. He was able to score takedowns basically at will and go to work in the top position. Amedovski was not able to get anything going in this fight, and he spent most of the fight stuck on the bottom eating shots. Jotko needed this victory to stop a three-fight winning steak and he did it in dominant fashion.
