Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Rony Jason will return to the Octagon 70 days after his last win.

Jason, the first TUF: Brazil winner, is set to take on Robbie Peralta at TUF: Brazil 3 Finale card on May 31 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, against Robbie Peralta. Combate first reported the match-up.

After suffering his first loss under the UFC banner, Jason (14-4) bounced back to the win column with a 77-second TKO win over Steven Siler at UFC Fight Night card in Natal, Brazil, in March. Prior to his first loss, Jason was riding an eight-fight win streak with seven stoppages.

Like Jason, Peralta (17-4, 1 no-contest) has only one loss in five UFC appearances. The Strikeforce veteran is coming off a third-round knockout victory over Estevan Payan, and has finished Jason Young and defeated Mike Lullo via decision in his other UFC wins.

TUF: Brazil 3 Finale card takes place at the Ibirapuera gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 31, and will be headlined by a light heavyweight clash between Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva.
