Warlley Alves isn’t going anywhere. In fact, he’s returning to the Octagon against Randy Brown at UFC Sao Paulo on Nov. 16, the company announced on Wednesday.
Alves (13-3), winner of the third season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil in 2014, became a free agent after knocking out Sergio Moraes in Rio de Janeiro in May. Months later, he has finally agreed to a new deal with the UFC.
Winner of three of his last four in the Octagon, Alves is the only man to ever defeat former interim welterweight champion Colby Covington, submitting him in just 86 seconds back in 2015. One of his defeats came at the hands of future 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman.
Brown (11-3), a former welterweight champion over at Ring of Combat, holds a 5-3 record under the UFC banner that includes wins over a knockout over Bryan Barberena and a decision against Mickey Gall.
