Michal Materla out, Jack Hermansson in at UFC Fight Night 119 in Brazil

The UFC’s fall return to Brazil has a new middleweight addition to the fight card.

UFC officials today announced a UFC Fight Night 119 bout between Jack Hermansson (16-3 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Thiago “Marreta” Santos (15-5 MMA, 7-4 UFC).

Santos originally was expected to fight KSW vet Michal Materla (24-5 MMA, 0-0 UFC). However, the 33-year-old Polish fighter reportedly decided to re-sign with the Polish promotion rather than ink a deal with the UFC.

UFC Fight Night 119 takes place Oct. 28 at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, and it airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Hermansson, a former Cage Warrior champion who went 7-0 with the promotion, is 3-1 since joining the UFC and is 11-1 overall (with eight stoppages) since early 2014. The 29-year-old Swede, who’s fought in four different countries (Germany, Brazil, Sweden and Mexico) since signing with the UFC, scored first-round TKO victories over Alex Nicholson and Brad Scott in his two most recent bouts.

He now meets Santos, a 33-year-old Brazilian who fights in his home country for the first time since a submission loss to Eric Spicely in September. Since then, he’s picked up second-round TKO victories over Jack Marshman (via spinning heel kick that earned “Performance of the Night” honors) and Gerald Meerschaert.

The latest UFC Fight Night 119 card now includes:

  • Lyoto Machida vs. Derek Brunson
  • Misha Cirkunov vs. Glover Teixeira
  • Colby Covington vs. Demian Maia
  • Jarred Brooks vs. Deiveson Figueiredo
  • Augusto Mendes vs. Boston Salmon
  • Christian Colombo vs. Carlos Felipe
  • Antonio Carlos Junior vs. Jack Marshman
  • Jack Hermansson vs. Thiago “Marreta” Santos
