UFC officials announced the pairings on Monday.
For both Perez (13-5) and Figueroa (9-3), the goal is to get back into the win column after falling short in their most recent contents.
Initially pinned as one of the 135-pound division's most promising prospects, Perez dropped a hard-fought split decision to Takeya Mizugaki last month at UFC Fight Night 27. The setback marked the 23-year-old Mexican's first fight since recovering from a life-threatening staph infection, and snapped his streak of three consecutive first-round victories.
Meanwhile, Natal (17-4-1) looks to extend his impressive streak of three straight victories, the last of which was punctuated by an electric ‘Fight of the Night' decision over Tor Troeng in his native Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
In doing so he'll face Herman (21-9, 1 NC), a 14-fight UFC veteran who recently rebounded from an ill-fated Strikeforce excursion to capture a split decision ‘Fight of the Night' victory over Trevor Smith.
UFC 167 takes place November 16, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. An updated fight card can be seen below.
