Caio Borralho’s UFC debut is back on the schedule.
Borralho is expected to face Jamie Pickett at UFC’s January 15th card, per a report from Guilherme Cruz and Mike Heck of MMA Fighting.
The bout joins a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.
UFC previously attempted to squeeze Borralho’s UFC debut onto a December 18th card, facing Dustin Stoltzfus are middleweight. That bout was later canceled due to visa issues on Borralho’s end.
Borralho secured a UFC contract over the summer, scoring two wins on TV show “Dana White’s Contender Series” within a month’s time.
Pickett earned his first UFC win in October, fighting to a unanimous decision win over Laureano Staropoli. He had previously lost two bouts in the promotion.
