Jack Marshman will return to Sao Paulo for his next UFC bout when he takes on Markus Perez at the upcoming Fight Night card in Brazil on Nov. 16, multiple sources confirmed to MMA Fighting following a report by Combate.

Marshman (23-9) flew to Sao Paulo for the first time in Oct. 2017, losing to Antonio Carlos Junior via submission. The former Cage Warriors middleweight champion went 1-2 since then with a decision win over John Phillips sandwiched between defeats to Karl Roberson and Edmen Shahbazyan.

Perez (11-2), an ex-LFA middleweight titleholder, has bounced between wins and losses since joining the UFC in 2017. “Maluko” lost to Eryk Anders in his debut and submitted James Bochnovic six months later, but then dropped another decision in the UFC, this time against Andrew Sanchez, before submitting Anthony Hernandez earlier this year.

UFC Sao Paulo takes place at the Ibirapuera gymnasium and features Ronaldo Souza’s light heavyweight debut versus Jan Blachowicz in the main event. Check the current line-up below.

Ronaldo Souza vs. Jan Blachowicz
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Trevor Smith
Antonio Arroyo vs. Kevin Holland
Markus Perez vs. Jack Marshman
Sergio Moraes vs. James Krause
Francisco Trinaldo vs. Bobby Green
Ariane Lipski vs. Priscila Cachoeira
Duda Santana vs. Leah Letson
