A light-heavyweight matchup between Thiago Santos and Glover Teixeira will headline the Sept. 12 UFC event.
Santos is coming off a split decision loss to Jon Jones at UFC 239 in July 2019. He is the first fighter to earn a winning scorecard against the longtime reigning champion.
Santos sustained injuries to both his knees during the fight, leading to long layoff following double knee surgery.
Teixeira is fresh off a fight-round TKO victory against Anthony Smith at UFC on ESPN +29 on May 13. He survived an early onslaught from Anthony Smith, but wore down the former title challenger in the later rounds.
At 40 years old, Teixeira is riding a four-fight win streak with wins over Smith, Nikita Krylov, Ion Cutelaba and Karl Roberson.
Also on the Sept. 12 event is a flyweight bout between Tyson Nam and Matt Schnell and a women’s flyweight rematch between Andre Lee and Roxanne Modaferri.
