A rematch with Todd Duffee is not in the immediate plans for Jeff Hughes.

Instead, Hughes will take on Raphael Pessoa at UFC Fight Night 162 in Singapore. Combate was first to report the heavyweight pairing. UFC Fight Night 162 goes down on Oct. 26 in Singapore and is headlined by a welterweight fight between Ben Askren and Demian Maia.

Hughes, as mentioned, is coming off the bout with Duffee that ended in a no contest due to an accidental eye poke at UFC Fight Night 158 in Vancouver on Sept. 14. Hughes, who earned a contract with the promotion on the Tuesday Night Contender Series, dropped a split decision to Maurice Greene in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 146.

Pessoa, meanwhile, was submitted by Ciryl Game in his promotional debut UFC Fight Night 156. It was the Brazilian’s first loss in nine professional outings.
