Gomez has won nine of his 11 career MMA fights, including the last two via submission. He was expected to compete in the semifinals of the Bellator bantamweight tournament, but a staph infection knocked him out.

Da Silva, who goes by the Formiga nickname, signed his UFC contract earlier this month. He carries a 14-1 record with him, including four consecutive submission triumphs. His lone loss came at the hands of Ian McCall.
