The Ultimate Fighting Championship has added a pivotal fight to its upcoming schedule, as it’s being reported that Kevin Lee will fight Charles Oliveira.

The lightweight contenders have been booked to fight at UFC Brasilia on March 14th, according to an initial report from Combate and a follow-up report from MMA Junkie. The UFC has yet to announce the match-up, which will serve as the card’s headliner.

Lee (18-5) is coming off a vicious, head kick knockout win over Gregor Gillespie in November. Prior to that, the 27-year-old dropped consecutive fights to Al Iaquinta and Rafael dos Anjos.

Oliveira (28-8), on the other hand, has won six in a row. Most recently he stopped Jared Gordon in November.
