UFC 128 is expected to take place March 19 at the Prudential Center, headlined by Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Rashad Evans for the UFC light heavyweight title.
Pyle, 20-7-1, is coming off arguably the biggest win of his career at UFC 120 against John Hathaway. The win improved the MMA veteran's Octagon record to 3-2.
Meanwhile, Almeida, who fights out of Hamilton, NJ, rebounded from his first-round loss to Matt Hughes in August to defeat TJ Grant via unanimous decision at UFC 124 earlier this month. The 13-4 fighter has won 4 of his last 5 bouts.
MMA Weekly first reported the news of the bout on Saturday.
The 170-pound bout is expected to take place on the pay-per-view portion of the card.
