Just 10 days removed from chocking Ovince St. Preux unconscious, Glover Teixeira (pictured) has been issued his next assignment.
On Tuesday, the UFC announced via Twitter that Teixeira will co-headline UFC Fight Night 77 opposite Pat Cummins.
The November 7 event will take place at a yet-to-be determined venue in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This month’s victory over OSP was a much-needed for Teixeira, as he was riding a two-fight skid into hostile territory in Tennessee.
Cummins also performed earlier this month with a surprising TKO win over Rafael Cavalcante. The wrestler has won four of his last five bouts.
Fox Sports 1 is expected to broadcast the main card live in America.
Here is the show’s updated lineup:
Yan Cabral vs. Johnny Case
Matheus Nicolau Pereira vs. Bruno Rodrigues
Gilbert Burns vs. Rashid Magomedov
Glover Teixeira vs. Pat Cummins
Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson
