UFC will return to Brazil on 14 March and a flyweight scrap has been added to the lineup.
Officials confirmed Su Mudaerji will meet Bruno Silva on the preliminary card. Both fighters will make the move down from bantamweight.
Before signing with the UFC, the 23-year-old Tibetan racked up an impressive record competing on China’s regional circuit.
Silva (11-4-1) will return to flyweight and vows to claim the title his long time friend Henry Cejudo once held.
UFC Brazil will be headlined by lightweights Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira.
