UFC on FS1 3 continues to take shape, as according to a report T.J. Dillashaw will fight fellow top ten bantamweight Raphael Assuncao at the September 4th event, which will take place in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The fight is being reported by the Brazilian outlet Globo.com. No official announcement has been made by the UFC yet.

Assuncao (20-4) has continued to rise up the bantamweight rankings since he left the featherweight division, as the accomplished grappler has won four straight fights. Most recently he tapped out Vaughan Lee with a second round, armbar at UFC on FUEL TV 10 in June.

Dillashaw has also won four in row, after he was stopped by Jon Dodson in the TUF 14 Finale, which took place in December, 2011. The noted wrestler scored a first round, stoppage win over Hugo Vianna in his last outing, which took place at UFC on FOX 7 in April.

The UFC on FS1 3 card will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 and the main event will see light-heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira fight former TUF winner Ryan Bader.
