The UFC returns to Barueri, Brazil on Dec. 20, and the promotion has added a featherweight bout to the upcoming UFC Fight Night 58 card.

Winner of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, Rony Jason will get back inside the Octagon against Finnish featherweight Tom Niinimaki. Combate first reported the bout.

Jason (14-5), who bounced between wins and losses since 2013, looks to get back on track following a close decision loss to Robbie Peralta in May. Prior to the loss, Jason scored a 77-second TKO victory over Steven Siler at UFN 38 in March.

Niinimaki (21-7-1), who impressed in his Octagon debut in a decision victory over Rani Yahya in November 2013, enters his UFN 58 bout against Jason in a two-fight losing streak, tapping to first-round submissions against Niklas Backstrom and Chas Skelly.

UFC Fight Night 58 takes place at the Jose Correa Gymnasium in Barueri, Sao Paulo, and the complete card is the following.

Lyoto Machida vs. C.B. Dollaway
Renan Barao vs. Mitch Gagnon
Erick Silva vs. Mike Rhodes
