Edson Barboza will return to action in January, facing Justin Salas at the planned UFC card from Brazil. Tatame confirmed the fight in an interview with Barboza.

The event is set to go down January 19, though no location has been determined. The UFC has yet to confirm the card, but multiple reports have it airing on either FX or Fuel TV.

Barboza (10-1) had his perfect record tarnished when Jamie Varner defeated him earlier this year via TKO. Barboza had won his previous four UFC bouts.

Salas (10-4) is 1-1 in his UFC career, but is coming off a TKO loss as well. Salas was stopped by Tim Means in June.

Edson should get the win in this fight and get himself back on track after suffering the set back at the hands of Jamie Varner.

WAR BARBOZA

I was thinking the same thing. Think their setting Barboza up for a win because they see some star power in him?

I get the match up because they want Edson to bounce back but I would have liked matching him with Paul Sass. Two top prospects trying to rebound against each other.

Now that's an interesting match up for sure! A guy who has slick stand up that's fun to watch vs a guy with exceptional ground skills that's fun to watch. I'm not too impressed with this fight but at least Barboza is back in the cage
