The UFC’s next card in Brazil has received a pivotal, flyweight match-up, as the promotion’s announced Jussier Formiga will battle Brandon Moreno.

Recently the UFC announced that Formiga and Moreno will battle on March 14th in Brasilia, Brazil.

Formiga (23-6) is looking to get back on track, as he’s coming off a stoppage loss to Joseph Benavidez in June. Prior to that the Brazilian fighter had won four straight.

Moreno (16-5-1), meanwhile, worked his way to a decision win over Kai Kara-France at UFC 245 earlier this month. The Mexican fighter is 2-2-1 in his last five bouts.

Currently Formiga is ranked #2 in the UFC’s 125 rankings and Moreno is #5.
