UFC officially announced its return to Brazil for May 31, and Pedro Munhoz has a new opponent.

The TUF: Brazil 3 Finale card takes place at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Munhoz, originally scheduled to meet fellow Brazilian Wilson Reis in the card, will welcome Matt Hobar to the Octagon.

Former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos headlines the card against Stipe Miocic.

Hobar (8-1), who became the Legacy FC bantamweight champ with a submission win over Angel Huerta last July, vacates the title to make his Octagon debut. He enters the UFC riding a three-fight win streak.

Munhoz (10-1), who suffered his first professional loss in his Octagon debut against top contender Raphael Assuncao, looks to bounce back to the win column. Prior to the loss, the former RFA champion scored 10 straight victories with seven finishes.

The current fight card is the following:

Main card
Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic
TUF: Brazil 3 middleweight final
TUF: Brazil 3 heavyweight final
Demian Maia vs. Alexander Yakovlev
Rony Jason vs. Robbie Peralta

Undercard
Diego Brandao vs. Brian Ortega
Elias Silverio vs. Ernest Chavez
Rodrigo Damm vs. Rashid Magomedov
Paulo Thiago vs. Gasan Umalatov
Kevin Souza vs. Mark Eddiva
