Rising middleweight Gerald Harris will welcome heavy-handed Chute Boxe product Maiquel Falcao to the UFC when the pair are expected to clash at “UFC 123: Rampage vs. Machida” on Nov. 20 in Detroit.
The matchup was first confirmed by Tatame on Monday, with Falcao reportedly signing a four-fight UFC deal.
Harris (17-3) has reeled off three-straight wins over John Salter, Mario Miranda, and Dave Branch since The Ultimate Fighter 7 castmember was invited back to the UFC earlier this year. Harris was tapped as a late-replacement for last month’s UFC 118, but his bout was ultimately scrapped from the card.
Falcao (25-3) has fought almost exclusively in his native Brazil and rides a seven-fight win streak with all first-round stoppages into his UFC debut.
