UFC officials announced the fight booking on Wednesday and the fight is likely to be placed on the preliminary card.

UFC on FS1 #3 will come from Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil and will be headlined by a five round light heavyweight bout as Glover Teixeira facing Ryan Bader.

Spencer (9-2) made his UFC debut earlier this year at UFC on FOX 6 and was defeated by Rafael Natal by arm triangle choke submission in the third round. The defeat snapped a three fight winning streak and both of his career defeats have come by submission.

Villefort (6-2) is a former Strikeforce fighter and made his UFC debut earlier this year. His UFC debut came against Nah-Shon Burrell and was defeated by unanimous decision. It was his second straight defeat and likely needs a victory to stay into the UFC.

The current UFC on FS1: Teixeira vs. Bader card is below:

Glover Teixeira (21-2) vs. Ryan Bader (15-3)
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (18-3, 1NC) vs. Yushin Okami (30-7)
Joseph Benavidez (18-3) vs. Jussier Formiga (15-2)
Sean Spencer (9-2) vs. Yuri Villefort (6-2)
