According to a report by the Brazilian news source Tatame, flyweights Jussier Formiga and Chris Cariaso will collide at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold. The card takes place May 18 from Santa Catarina, Brazil.
Formiga (14-2) suffered a loss to John Dodson last year, falling by second round TKO. It was the first stoppage defeat of his career, and ended a five-fight win streak.
Cariaso (14-4) is also coming off a loss, as he was submitted by John Moraga in December. He had previously won three straight inside the Octagon – all by decision.
