The UFC added a new pair of lightweight match-ups to the upcoming Fight Night 58 card in Barueri, Brazil, including the return of Charlie Brenneman, who takes on Brazilian lightweight Leandro Silva on Dec. 20.

"The Spaniard" (19-7) re-signed with the UFC after going 4-0 in smaller promotions, but came up short against Beneil Dariush and Danny Castillo earlier this year. His last win under the UFC banner came in 2012, when he defeated Daniel Roberts via decision.

"Buscape" (16-2-1) is 0-2 under the UFC banner with losses on short notice to Francisco Trinaldo and ldemar Alcantara. Between those fights, Silva racked up a five-fight winning streak with victories in Brazil and Japan.

The second 155-pound bout added to the card features undefeated Elias Silverio against Russian lightweight Rashid Magomedov.

Silverio (11-0), a former Jungle Fight welterweight champion, is 3-0 inside the Octagon. In his last appearance, "Xuxu" choked out Ernest Chavez in May. His previous UFC wins came with decisions over against Joao Zeferino and Isaac Vallie-Flagg.

Magomedov (17-1) looks for his 11th win in a row after defeating Tony Martin and Rodrigo Damm in his first UFC bouts. A former M-1 Global 170-pound champion, Magomedov also holds wins over UFC fighters Igor Araujo and Alexander Yakovlev.

Headlined by Lyoto Machida vs. C.B. Dollaway, UFC Fight Night 58 takes place at the Jose Correa gymnasium in Barueri, Sao Paulo. The card also features a pair of light heavyweight bouts in Patrick Cummins vs. Antonio Carlos Junior and Igor Pokrajac vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima.
