A source close to the situation has told 5thRound.com that former UFC fighter Vinicius “Pezao” Magalhaes will face Jason Guida, Clay’s older brother, at the upcoming “Carolina Crown II” event. Magalhaes was originally slated to face Lance Evans, who just so happens to be Rashad Evans’ brother.

The heavyweight bout is scheduled for October 24th.

Magalhaes is best known for his stint on “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series where he made it to the finals, but fell just short to eventual champion Ryan Bader at “The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale.”

From there, Magalhaes lost a controversial unanimous decision to Eliot Marshall at “UFC 97: Redemption” which prompted the UFC to release the skilled Jiu-Jitsu fighter.
