Thomas Almeida will head home for UFC Fight Night 100.

Almeida will square off with Albert Morales in the co-main event of the Nov. 19 card in the former's hometown of Sao Paulo, Brazil, the UFC announced Tuesday.

Almeida (21-1) looks to rebound from his first career loss. Almeida was knocked out by Cody Garbrandt in May in Las Vegas, which also snapped his unbeaten streak in the UFC at four.

Morales (6-0-1), who brief pro career has already included fights in Bellator and WSOF, had a majority draw in his UFC debut against Alejandro Perez at UFC Fight Night 94. The Carson, Calif., native has five career finishes among his six victories.
