UFC officials announced the fight booking on Monday evening and the bout will take place on the preliminary card.

UFC Fight Night 36 will come from Jaragua do Sol, Brazil on February 15th and will be headlined by a middleweight bout as former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida meets Gegard Mousasi.

Damm (11-6) has won two of his three fights in the UFC since entering the organization through The Ultimate Fighter Brazil. Following his win over Mizuto Hirota at UFC on FUEL TV 10, he was scheduled to return at UFC Fight Night 29. However, the fight was cancelled just days before the event due to Damm having kidney stones.

Jorge (25-3) is currently on a seven fight winning streak and made his debut in September at UFC Fight Night 29 against Keith Wisniewski. He won the fight by unanimous decision and it was his first win by decision since 2010.
