Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping have agreed to meet in January. The two middleweights will square off in the main event of a Brazilian card on January 19. The exact location has yet to be determined, and the card is expected to air on either FX or Fuel TV.
The UFC also announced the co-main event, as C.B. Dollaway will collide with Daniel Sarafian. Sarafian reached the finals of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, but an injury knocked him out of the bout.
Belfort is coming off a loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, but it appears that fight is not going to hurt his stock at 185 at all. Bisping, meanwhile, recently toppled Brian Stann. Below is the current card for the event:
