The UFC has officially announced a bantamweight clash between Joe Soto and Rani Yahya for the upcoming Fight Night event in Fortaleza, Brazil, on March 11.

Soto (17-5) bounced back from an 0-3 start in the UFC, including a loss to T.J. Dillashaw in a title fight on short notice, with back-to-back submission victories over Chris Beal and Marco Antonio Beltran in 2016.

Yahya (23-8, 1 no-contest) is undefeated in five fights as a bantamweight in the Octagon, and returns to the cage six months after a decision win over Michinori Tanaka in Brazil.
