A welterweight clash between Luan Chagas and Jim Wallhead was booked for UFC 212, sources told MMA Fighting following a report by Combate.

UFC 212 is scheduled for June 3 at the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Chagas (14-2-1) gets his third chance in the Octagon after fighting to a draw with Sergio Moraes on short notice in his promotional debut last May at UFC 198, and losing to Erick Silva four months later.

Wallhead (29-10), who competed in some of the biggest promotions around the world prior to signing with the UFC, is still looking for his first Octagon win following a split decision loss to Jessin Ayari in his debut last September.

The UFC 212 card now includes 11 bouts. The promotion has yet to announce a new opponent for former middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who was originally scheduled to take on Kelvin Gastelum.
