Clearly MMA fans are going to be spending a lot of time in front of the TV (or computer) as 2015 winds down, as the UFC has announced another compelling bout for its upcoming schedule.

On Tuesday, the promotion confirmed that Glover Teixeira will throw down with fellow light-heavyweight contender Patrick Cummins on November 7th. The bout will be part of UFC Fight Night 77, which will take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Teixeira (23-4) is looking to build on the technical submission win he scored over Ovince Saint Preux on August 8th. Prior to the win, the well rounded fighter was decisioned by Phil Davis and former champ Jon Jones in consecutive bouts.

Cummins (8-2) is also coming off a victory, as he stopped Rafael Cavalcante with a vicious flurry of elbows on August 1st. The decorated wrestler was KO’d by OSP in his previous outing.

So, that’s a nice addition to UFC FN 77, which will see Vitor Belfort battle Dan Henderson for a third time in the main event.
