It’s Brazil vs. the world in Las Vegas.

The UFC announced on Thursday that Rafael Natal and Tom Watson are set to collide at the UFC 183 pay-per-view card in Las Vegas on Jan. 31. So far, seven of the eight bouts officially announced for the fight card features at least one Brazilian.

The Brazilian middleweight Natal (18-6-1) gets back in action following a close decision win over Chris Camozzi in September, moving back to the win column following losses to Tim Kennedy and Ed Herman.

England’s Watson (17-7) also enters the bout after recently ending a losing skid. "Kong", who suffered decision losses to Thales Leites and Nick Catone, holds a UFC record of 2-3 after scoring a win over Sam Alvey in August.

Headlined by Anderson Silva vs. Nick Diaz, UFC 183 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
