A flyweight bout between Bruno Silva and Su Mudaerji was added to the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Brasilia, Brazil, on March 14, multiple sources told MMA Fighting. Both fighters will be moving down from bantamweight.

Silva (11-4-1) came up short against Khalid Taha in his Octagon debut in October. The loss might get overturned to a no-contest after Taha failed a drug test on the night of UFC 243. “Bulldoguinho” was part of TUF Brazil 4 in 2015, going 1-1 in the reality show.

Mudaerji (12-4), who also lost in his first UFC appearance in November 2018, tapping against Louis Smolka in China, bounced back with an unanimous decision victory over Andre Soukhamthath at bantamweight in August 2019.

UFC Brasilia will take place at the Nilson Nelson gymnasium and features Kevin Lee vs. Charles Oliveira in a five-round lightweight headliner.
