Jimmie Rivera and Pedro Munhoz will lock horns for a second time at an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on Jan. 30.

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 Heinisch.

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 Cody Stamann at UFC on ESPN 13 on July 15.

Munhoz, meanwhile, is coming off a narrow split-decision defeat to Frankie 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.
