The UFC’s October return to Brazil includes two new matchups and four colorful nicknames.

UFC officials recently announced the addition of middleweights Antonio Carlos Junior (8-2-1 MMA, 5-2 UFC) vs. Jack Hermansson (16-3 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Christian Colombo vs. Carlos Felipe to the Oct. 28 event, which airs on FS1 from Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo.

“Cara de Sapato” Carlos Junior, the heavyweight winner of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3,” struggled with mixed results on his way down to the middleweight division. However, he has since rattled off three consecutive victories over Eric Spicely, Marvin Vettori and Leonardo Augusto Guimaraes. He now faces “The Joker” Hermansson, who currently stands at an impressive 11-1 in his past 12 appearances, including three wins in his first four UFC appearances.

Denmark’s Colombo (8-2-1 MMA, 0-1-1 UFC), known as “Godzilla,” seeks his first UFC win in his third UFC contest. The 6-foot-5 fighter settled for a majority draw in his UFC debut against Jarjis Danho before being submitted by Luis”KLB” Henrique. He meets Brazilian newcomer “Boi” Felipe, 22, who made his UFC debut in November 2014 and has scored six knockouts in his eight career wins to date.

With the additions to the card, UFC Fight Night 119 now includes:

  • Lyoto Machida vs. Derek Brunson
  • Misha Cirkunov vs. Glover Teixeira
  • Colby Covington vs. Demian Maia
  • Deiveson Alcantara vs. Jarred Brooks
  • Antonio Carlos Junior vs. Jack Hermansson
  • Augusto Mendes vs. Boston Salmon
  • Christian Colombo vs. Carlos Felipe
