A welterweight showdown pitting James Krause against Warlley Alves will be the 13th addition to the UFC Fight Night 135 lineup.

Krause confirmed the pairing on Instagram following an initial report from Combate. UFC Fight Night 135 takes place at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb., on Aug. 25 and is headlined by a lightweight scrap between Justin Gaethje and James Vick. The card airs on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Krause has won his last four promotional outings, including a three-round verdict over Alex White at UFC Fight Night 124 on Jan. 14. The 32-year-old is 6-4 in the UFC and 25-7 as a professional overall.

Alves, meanwhile, has rebounded from an 0-2 skid in 2016 to post consecutive triumphs over Salim Touahri and Sultan Aliev in his last two UFC appearances. The 27-year-old Brazilian is 6-2 in the UFC and 12-2 overall.
