Carlo Pedersoli Jr. will replace Neil Magny and face Alex Oliveira in a welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night 137 on Sept. 22.

Combate was first to report the new matchup. Magny was recently transported to UFC Fight Night Buenos Aires to headline the card opposite Santiago Ponzinibbio.

Pedersoli won his eighth consecutive bout in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 130, as he took a split decision over Bradley Scott on May 27. The 25-year-old Brazilian is 11-1 as a professional and also owns a win over former UFC competitor Nicolas Dalby under the Cage Warriors banner.

Oliveira is coming off the biggest triumph of his career to date, a second-round submission of Carlos Condit at UFC on Fox 29 on April 14. The Brazilian “Cowboy” has lost just once in his last seven promotional appearances.
