The lightweight veteran is scheduled to compete against Francisco Trinaldo at the UFC Sao Paulo event on Oct. 28, the promotion announced Tuesday. Combate first reported the match-up.

Miller (28-10, 1 no-contest) looks to rebound from decision losses to Anthony Pettis and Dustin Poirier earlier this year. The New Jersey native has won three in a row prior to his recent setbacks, defeating Takanori Gomi, Joe Lauzon and Thiago Alves.

Trinaldo (21-5) returns to action for the first time since losing to Kevin Lee in March. The recent defeat snapped the longest winning streak of his MMA career, a seven-fight run that included wins over Paul Felder, Yancy Medeiros and Ross Pearson.
