MMAjunkie.com was first to report the pairing. A location for
the card has not been announced. The UFC Fight Night event will
also include a middleweight matchup pitting Kelvin
Gastelum against Ian
Rivera and Munhoz initially squared off more than five years ago at
UFC Fight Night 77, with Rivera claiming a split-decision triumph.
That was part of a 20-bout professional winning streak for Rivera,
who is just 2-3 in the Octagon since 2018. Most recently, “El
Terror” snapped a two-bout skid with a three-roud verdict against
Stamann at UFC on ESPN 13 on July 15.
Munhoz, meanwhile, is coming off a narrow split-decision defeat to
Edgar at UFC on ESPN 15. Prior to that, “The Young Punisher”
had a three-bout winning streak snapped in a decision loss to
current No. 1 contender Aljamain
Sterling at UFC 238.
