Recent Dana White’s Contender Series winner Kleydson Rodrigues will make his Octagon debut against Zarrukh Adashev at a UFC event on Jan. 15.

Sherdog.com learned of the booking from a source close to the situation. The card does not yet have a location or headliner.

A former Jungle Fight flyweight champion, Rodrigues earned a UFC contract on the basis of a lopsided unanimous verdict over Santo Curatolo on Sept. 21. The 25-year-old Brazilian is 7-1 over the course of a professional tenure that began in 2015.

Adashev, meanwhile, halted a two-bout skid with a three-round verdict over Ryan Benoit at UFC on ESPN 28. The Lion Martial Arts Gym representative went 3-0 in Bellator before signing with the Las Vegas-based promotion, where he would fall to Tyson Nam and Su Mudaerji in his first two appearances.
