The UFC’s next event in Sao Paolo, Brazil, has received a noteworthy light-heavyweight scrap, as the promotion has announced that Glover Teixeira will battle Patrick Cummins.

UFC FN 77 will take place on November 7th and will be hosted by the city’s Ginásio do Ibirapuera.

Teixeira (23-4) is coming off an impressive, choke out victory over Ovince Saint Preux earlier this month, after dropping consecutive fights to Phil Davis and Jon Jones. Teixeira is currently ranked #3 in the promotion’s 205 division.

Cummins (8-2) took out Rafael Cavalcante at UFC 190, after he was knocked out by Saint Preux in April. Cummins is positioned in the #10 spot.

Other bouts that have been added to the card include Gilbert Burns vs. Rashid Magomedov, Yan Cabral vs. Johnny Case, Abel Trujillo vs. Gleison Tibau and Tom Lawlor vs. Fabio Maldonado.

UFC FN 77 will be headlined by a middleweight fight between Dan Henderson and Vitor Belfort.
