U.S. Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo will try for a second time to make his Octagon debut, signing to face Dustin Kimura at UFC on FOX 13 this December.

Set for December 13 from Phoenix and the U.S. Airways Center, the card features Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic in the main event.

Cejudo (6-0) was scheduled to fight Scott Jorgensen in August at flyweight, but was not allowed to even weigh-in after complications in cutting weight. Before signing with the UFC, the 27-year-old battled weight problems, so this time, he’ll try for bantamweight.

Kimura (11-2) is 2-2 in four Octagon appearances, defeating Chico Camus and Jon Delos Reyes, while falling to Mitch Gagnon and George Roop.

Below is the current lineup:

Heavyweight: Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic

Lightweight: Nate Diaz vs. Rafael dos Anjos

Heavyweight: Stefan Struve vs. Alistair Overeem

Middleweight: Derek Brunson vs. Ed Herman
