UFC Fight Night 58 card is nearing completion, as a featherweight bout between Rony “Jason” Bezerra and Tom Niinimaki has reportedly been booked for the event.

UFC FN 58 is scheduled for December 20th, and will take place in Barueri, Brazil.

The “Jason”-Niinimaki fight is being reported by Globo’s Combate, but the promotion has yet to confirm the fight.

“Jason” (14-5) dropped a split decision to Robbie Peralta in May, after he stopped Steven Silver in March. Bezerra is 3-2 in his last 5 fights.

Niinimaki (21-7-1) is coming off consecutive, submission losses to Niklas Backstrom and Chas Skelly after winning 12 straight.

The upcoming Fight Night card will feature Lyoto Machida taking on fellow middleweight contender CB Dollaway in the main event.
