UFC on FS1 #3 will come from Belo Horizonte, Brazil and the UFC has confirmed that a light heavyweight bout will headline the card as Glover Teixeira will face Ryan Bader.

Along with announcing the main event, the promotion also announced two other bouts as former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza will meet Yushin Okami in the co-main event and Joseph Benavidez meets Jussier Formiga.

Bader (15-3) was originally scheduled to face Teixeira at UFC 160 on Memorial Day weekend but an injury forced him to pull out of the fight. He has won three of his last four fights with his only lost coming against former UFC champion Lyoto Machida at UFC on FOX 4 last year.

Teixeira (21-2) has opened his UFC career with four straight victories and has won his last nineteen fights. He is coming off a submission win over James Te Huna at UFC 160 and three of his four victories in the UFC have come by stoppage.

The main card will be a two hour broadcast beginning at 8 p.m. ET and will lead into The Ultimate Fighter 18: Rousey vs. Tate. The UFC will be announcing more fights for this fight card and on sale ticket information in the near future.
