Renato Carneiro will make his second lightweight appearance against Magomed Mustafaev at an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on Oct. 17.

Combate was first to report the 155-pound booking. The Fight Night card will be headlined by a featherweight showdown between Chan Sung Jung and Brian Ortega. A location has not been announced, but it will likely be held on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Carneiro made his lightweight debut at UFC Fight Night 170 in March, when he submitted Damir Hadzovic in 44 seconds. “Moicano’s” move from featherweight to 155 pounds came on the heels of back-to-back losses at the hands of Jung and Jose Aldo.

Mustafaev has lost two of his last three Octagon appearances, including a split-decision setback against Brad Riddell at UFC Fight Night 168 on Feb. 23. The 32-year-old Russian in 3-2 in UFC competition and 14-3 as a professional overall.
