The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to build the line-up for its October 25th card in Rio de Janeiro, as Andre Fili will fight featherweight Felipe Arantes.

UFC 179 will be hosted by the Maracanazinho Gymnasium and will feature featherweight champ Jose Aldo taking on Chad Mendes in the main event.

Fili (13-2) will be looking to bounce back from a submission loss to Max Holloway in April, after he stopped Jeremy Larsen in October.

Arantes (16-6-1), meanwhile, earned a decision win over Maximo Blanco in his last outing, after he dropped a split decision to Edimilson Souza last September.

Other bouts that have been confirmed for UFC 179 include Glover Teixeira vs. Phil Davis and Scott Jorgensen vs. Wilson Reis.
