With Caio Magalhaes a late scratch from the UFC's Tampa event on April 16 due to injury, New York's Oluwale Bamgbose will make the trip from the Big Apple to face Cezar "Mutante" Ferreira in a middleweight bout at Amalie Arena.
In the UFC on FOX main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans faces top five contender Glover Teixeira.
Fresh from a one-minute knockout of Daniel Sarafian in February which marked his first UFC win, Bamgbose - who has earned all six of his pro victories by KO - will look to make it two straight against former TUF winner Ferreira, who returns to the middleweight division in his adopted homestate of Florida.
