Multiple people with knowledge of the booking confirmed the news to MMA Fighting. The official bout order for the winter card has not yet been made official, however a bantamweight clash between Cory Sandhagen and Marlon Vera serves as the main event.
Making his fourth octagon appearance, Harris is attempting to bounce back after his first UFC loss, a first-round knockout at the hands of surging contender Shavkat Rakhmonov at UFC Vegas 47. The setback snapped a two-fight UFC winning streak (and five overall when including regional wins) for the 35-year-old Guyana native.
Brahimaj approaches the bout on the opposite side of the competitive coin with a recent win under his belt, a first-round submission of Micheal Gillmore at UFC Vegas 49. That put him back on the right foot after a decision loss to vet Court McGee in his prior outing. Overall, Brahimaj stands at 2-2 in the octagon.
