Glover Teixeira vs Rampage Jackson at UFC on Fox 6UFC on Fox Sports 1 #3 has yet to be officially announced by promotion officials, but a report from Brazilian website Portal do Vale Tudo says it is a go and revealed two more bouts for the event.

UFC officials have long targeted Sept. 4 for a Fox Sports 1 event in Brazil. The original plan was for Porto Alegre to host the event, but PVT reports the UFC will instead return to Belo Horizonte for the event.

A bout between Joseph Benavidez and Jussier “Formiga” da Silva has already been rumored for Sept. 4, but the two new bouts include Glover Teixeira vs. Ryan Bader in a light heavyweight tilt and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Yushin Okami at middleweight.

Teixeira (21-2) and Bader (15-3) were originally slated to fight at UFC 160, but Bader had to withdraw due to an MCL injury. Teixeira went on to score a first-round submission victory over James Te Huna.

Jacare (18-3) recently made his promotional debut by submitting Chris Camozzi at UFC on FX 8. Okami (29-7) is on a three-fight winning streak, recovering well following a failed attempt to take the middleweight belt from Anderson Silva and then losing to Tim Boetsch in his next bout.
