The UFC has added another bout to their next trip to Brazil.

Gleison Tibau and Abel Trujillo are set to collide in a lightweight contest in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Nov. 7, sources close to the situation told on Tuesday.

Tibau (31-11) looks to get back to the win column following a submission loss to Tony Ferguson, that snapped a three-fight winning streak under the UFC banner.

Trujillo (12-6, 1 no-contest), who also lost to Ferguson in his last UFC bout, is 3-2 inside the Octagon with three second-round knockouts.

UFC Fight Night 78 will take place at Sao Paulo’s Ibirapuera gymnasium and feature a trilogy bout between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson in the main event.
