Alex "Cowboy" Oliveira will take on Carlo “Semento” Pedersoli at UFC Sao Paulo on September 22. Oliveira was originally scheduled to fight Neil Magney, who was recently shifted over to the main event of UFC Buenos Aires against Santiago Ponzinibbio.

Oliveira (19-4-1-2NC) most recently defeated former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit via second-round submission in April. "Cowboy" holds other notable octagon wins over K.J. Noons, Will Brooks, and Ryan LaFlare since joining the promotion in 2015.

Pedersoli (11-1) is currently riding an eight-fight win streak, most recently defeating Bradley Scott via split decision this May in his UFC debut.
