A lightweight matchup between Thiago Moises and Guram Kutateladze is on for the upcoming UFC pay-per-view card in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Jan. 21, multiple people with knowledge of the news told MMA Fighting following a report from Carlos Antunes.

UFC 283 will air on pay-per-view and feature a flyweight title unification bout between Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno in the main event.

Moises (16-6) will return to action seven months after tapping Christos Giagos with a standing rear-naked choke in just over three minutes, rebounding from back-to-back stoppage defeats to future 155-pound champion Islam Makhachev and Joel Alvarez.

The former RFA champion is 5-4 in the UFC, a run that includes wins over the likes of Michael Johnson, Bobby Green and Alexander Hernandez.

Kutateladze (12-3), a training partner of welterweight sensation Khamzat Chimaev in Sweden, dropped a split decision to Damir Ismagulov in his most recent octagon appearance this past June, snapping a nine-fight winning streak that included a 2020 split decision over Mateusz Gamrot in his UFC debut.
