UFC flyweights Cortney Casey and Priscila Cachoeira will battle inside the octagon on Oct. 31, multiple sources told MMA Fighting following a report from Combate.

The promotion has yet to announce the exact location for the Fight Night event, which will feature a middleweight showdown between Uriah Hall and Anderson Silva as the headliner.

Casey (9-8), who has bounced between wins and losses over the past couple of years in the UFC, now looks to get back on track following a third-round submission defeat to Gillian Robertson in June, a month after submitting Mara Romero Borella in Jacksonville, Fla.

Cachoeira (9-3) signed a new contract with the UFC after scoring a devastating 40-second knockout over Shana Dobson in February, coming back from a 3-0 start in the company with defeats to Valentina Shevchenko, Molly McCann and Luana Carolina.
