It didn’t take long for the Ultimate Fighting Championship to find a new opponent for Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 137. Oliveira was originally scheduled to fight Neil Magny at a UFC event in Sao Paulo. Magny, however, pulled out of the bout to face Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC Fight Night 140 on Nov. 17. Now, Carlo Pedersoli Jr. has stepped up to face Oliveira on Sept. 22. The matchup was first reported by Brazilian website Combate, but Sherdog’s own source has confirmed the report.

Oliveira (19-4-1, 2 N/C) is coming off a second-round submission against Carlos Condit at UFC on Fox: Poirier vs. Gaethje. The Brazilian “Cowboy” has won five of his last seven fights. His last three appearances were rewarded with two “Performance of the Night” bonuses and a “Fight of the Night” bonus. Carlo "Semento" Pedersoli Jr. (11-1) recently made his Octagon debut at UFC Liverpool. On that occasion, the Italian-American fighter defeated Bradley Scott by split decision.

Slight step up in competition for Pedersoli, will be interesting to see if he can withstand the grinding clinch game of Oliveira. I think he might have his number in the striking but fighters seems to get sucked into the game of Oliveira
