Sean Strickland will make his first Octagon appearance in two years when he locks horns with Wellington Turman in a welterweight bout on Oct. 31.

Combate was first to report the booking. The UFC event is headlined by a middleweight showdown between Anderson Silva and Uriah Hall and is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Strickland hasn’t competed since he was injured and underwent knee surgery following a motorcycle accident in December 2018. Strickland last appeared at UFC Fight Night 138, where he scored a second-round TKO of Nordine Taleb in October 2018. “Tarzan” is 7-3 over the course of his promotional tenure.

Turman has lost two of his first three bouts in the Octagon. Most recently, the 24-year-old Brazilian suffered a first-round knockout loss at the hands of Andrew Sanchez at UFC Fight Night 174.
