A previously planned bout for September in Brazil has been re-booked for October and Brazil, as T.J. Dillashaw meets Raphael Assuncao at UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. Shields.
The card takes place October 9 with the main card airing live on FOX Sports 1 from Barueri. Placement of the bout is unknown.
Dillashaw (8-1) hasn’t lost since falling to John Dodson in The Ultimate Fighter 14 Final. That includes wins over Walel Watson, Vaughan Lee, Issei Tamura and Hugo Viana over the past year-plus.
Assuncao (20-4) has won four straight at bantamweight after moving down from the featherweight division.
The bout was first confirmed by Globo in Brazil.
