Hard-hitting light heavyweights Glover Teixeira and Jimi Manuwa will headline UFC Fight Night 137 and start their campaigns for redemption.

The UFC today announced the matchup for the Sept. 22 fight card, which takes place at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The event airs live on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Teixeira (27-7 MMA, 10-5 UFC) is less than a month removed from a decision loss to Corey Anderson at UFC Fight Night 134. Since a failed bid for the title against now-former champ Jon Jones in 2014, the Brazilian vet is 5-4 in the octagon.

The UFC Fight Night 137 card now includes:

Glover Teixeira vs. Jimi Manuwa
Sam Alvey vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Tonya Evinger vs. Ketlen Vieira
Neil Magny vs. Alex Oliveira
Sergio Moraes vs. Ben Saunders
Belal Muhammad vs. Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos
Thales Leites vs. Hector Lombard
Evan Dunham vs. Francisco Trinaldo
Alex Chambers vs. Livia Renata Souza
Mark Godbeer vs. Luis Henrique
Renan Barao vs. Andre Ewell
Antonio Carlos Junior vs. Elias Theodorou

No complaints here for this Brazil Fight Night Card. Several solid fights.

This card has more depth than tonight's UFC 227 card and I'm not exaggerating at all.

Was it just me or did they not ask Jimi any questions at the press conference?

Antonio Carlos junior and Elias Theodorou are total doppelgangers. Not sure if Elias can weasel a decision in this fight though.

Also I agree, this card is pretty good. I like when cards are consistent top to bottom.

I’m a big fan of Demetrious Johnson but other than the last 3 fights of the night the rest of the card is weak sauce bra

Yeah they are except Carlos might be better standing and like you said, Brazil will help him if it's close. I feel bad for Glover, clearly he is not in the prime of his career anymore, he looked old and slow against Corey, Manuwa is a powerful striker that is fast as well. Woulda rather seen Glover/Shogun since they are both kind of at the end of their careers.

Renan Barao...from champ of the world headlining PPVs to the bottom of the card. My, how his stock has fallen.
