The welterweight matchup is the latest addition to the five confirmed slugfests on the San Antonio card, announced earlier this month. While the UFC hasn't confirmed the bout, MMA journalist Damon Martin shared details on Twitter two days ago.
Confirmation also came from Pereira in a recent interview with a Brazilian media outlet PVT, and Brady also shared the news via Instagram.
Meanwhile, Pereira is looking to crack the UFC’s Top 10 welterweight rankings, and he rolls into the bout with the confidence of finishing a five-fight winning streak.
Although a main event hasn't yet been announced for the stacked San Antonio card, the other fights include:
- Holly Holm vs. Yana Kunitskaya
- Manel Kape vs. Alex Perez
- Maycee Barber vs. Andrea Lee
- Albert Duraev vs. Chidi Njokuani
