Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently added a lightweight showdown between Will Brooks and Alex Oliveira to its upcoming UFC Fight Night 96 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, locked and loaded for Oct. 1, 2016 inside Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.

The main card airs on FOX Sports 1.

Brooks (18-1) made a successful Octagon debut by outpointing Ross Pearson at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 23 Finale just last month, after a championship run through the ranks of Bellator MMA. "Cowboy" Oliveira (14-4-1, 1 NC), meanwhile, is fresh off his unanimous decision win over James Moontasri.

That's not all.
