Welterweights James Krause and Sergio Moraes will collide at the upcoming UFC card in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Nov. 16, multiple sources confirmed to MMA Fighting following a report by Combate.

The Fight Night is set to take place at the Ibirapuera Gymnasium. The promotion has yet to announce which bouts headlines the event.

Krause (26-7) is on a five-fight winning streak, capped off by a second-round knockout over TUF Brazil winner Warlley Alves in Aug. 2018. Krause is undefeated in UFC bouts since deciding to compete at TUF 25 in 2017. His overall record in the UFC is 7-3.

Moraes (14-5-1), on the other hand, looks to get back on track after losing to Anthony Rocco Martin and Warlley Alves earlier this year. The jiu-jitsu world champion won eight of 12 UFC bouts since dropping back down to welterweight in 2012.
