Nad Narimani has a new opponent for next week’s UFC Fight Night show in Argentina.

“Smiler,” who was originally booked to face Sergio Giglio at the Nov. 17 card in Buenos Aires, will now welcome Brazilian talent Anderson dos Santos to the Octagon, MMA Fighting confirmed the news following a report by MMA Brasil.

dos Santos (20-6), originally a bantamweight, will move up to 145 pounds for this contest. He enters the fight two weeks after defeating Aleandro Caetano via decision in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Narimani (11-2) made his UFC debut in July, defeating Khalid Taha via unanimous decision. The former Cage Warriors featherweight champion is looking for his fifth straight victory in the sport.

Headlined by Neil Magny vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio, UFC Argentina takes place at the Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires and airs live on FOX Sports 1.
