A flyweight bout between John Moraga and Deiveson Figueiredo was officially added to UFC’s upcoming Fight Night card in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Aug. 25.

UFC Lincoln will be headlined by lightweights Justin Gaethje and Al Iaquinta at the Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Moraga (19-6) is riding a three-fight winning streak, including wins over Wilson Reis and Magomed Bibulatov. “Chicano” is 6-4 since challenging Demetrious Johnson for the UFC flyweight championship in 2013.

Figueiredo (14-0) holds a perfect MMA record with a trio of Octagon victories against Marco Antonio Beltran, Jarred Brooks and Joseph Morales. “Deus da Guerra” (“God of War” in Portuguese) will compete for the first time outside of Brazil.
