A pair of recent featherweight winners will look to put together much-needed win streaks in January.

Diego Nunes (18-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Nik Lentz (24-5-2 MMA, 6-2-1 UFC) are set to meet when the UFC returns to Brazil.

As MMAjunkie.com first reported, the UFC will return to Brazil for the Jan. 19 event, though a host city hasn't been determined. The event is expected to be a UFC on FUEL TV or UFC on FX offering, not a pay-per-view card.

Portal do Vale Tudo first reported the bout, though MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) could not immediately confirm the fight with the UFC.

This is a huge step up for Lentz, I got Nunes taking this one probably on decision. Just dont see how Lentz could pull the win out in this one to be honest.

Lentz has a clear path to win it will be boring but he can grind out a UD for sure. I agree its a nice step up.

Nunes has solid TDD and I bet he can stuff the takedown attempts and grind out a victory with his striking.

I like both of these guys so it sucks one of them will have to lose. Good fight, though.

I love this fight! I'm organizing a fantasy pool for each division in my fight camp and took Lentz as one of my featherweights and really like his chances of blanketing Nunes.

Im going with Lentz. Nunes is good but goes to decisions almost every fight....and thats too much to bet against a wrestler for me...

I'm not to thrilled about this match up, but this is one of those fights that could end up being good.
