Teixeira vs. Bader Headlines Belo Horizonte

Up-to-the-minute news about the third UFC on FOX Sports 1 event, taking place Wednesday, September 4 in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Fights below have been verbally agreed upon and are subject to change.
After a successful visit to Brazil's Belo Horizonte last summer for UFC 147, the UFC will return on September 4 with an event guaranteed to produce a new batch of top contenders.

The three initial bouts announced for the card all feature top-ten fighters hoping to make a case for a title shot, so the championship landscape could have a decidedly different look come the morning of September 5. 

Headlining the event will be surging light heavyweight Glover Teixeira, who will be fighting in his home state of Minas Gerais in search of his 20th straight victory. Across the Octagon will be TUF 8 season winner Ryan Bader in what will be his first fight in Brazil.

In the co-main event, former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza will follow up his electrifying UFC debut with a bout against perennial middleweight contender Yushin Okami.

Also confirmed for the fight night is a flyweight showdown between Brazilian Jussier Formiga and Sacramento, California's Joseph Benavidez. The two are currently ranked number five and number one in the UFC, respectively.

More details, including the venue and ticket on-sale information, will be released in coming weeks on UFC.com.
