Alexandre (12-2), who competed at TUF Brazil 3 as a middleweight, dropped to 0-2 under the UFC banner after a split decision loss to Tim Means last December. The Brazilian was scheduled to meet George Sullivan in July, but pulled out with a rib injury.

UFC 194 features featherweight champion Jose Aldo and middleweight kingpin Chris Weidman putting UFC their titles on the line against interim titleholder Conor McGregor and Luke Rockhold, respectively.
