The Ultimate Fighter Season 19 winner Corey Anderson will make the trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil for the first time on Nov. 7, as he replaces the injured Tom Lawlor in a light heavyweight bout against Fabio Maldonado.
UFC Fight Night, which takes place at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera, is headlined by the rubber match between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson. The event airs live on FOX Sports 1.
Winner of three of his first four UFC bouts, Anderson is coming off a clear-cut victory over veteran contender Jan Blachowicz at UFC 191 in September. Fan favorite Maldonado is seeking a return to the win column after a UFC 186 loss to Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in April.
