The event is set to be held in Belo Horizonte on Sept. 4. UFC officials announced the news on Wednesday, also revealing the co-main event would be Ronaldo 'Jacare' Souza vs. Yushin Okami. The card will serve as the lead-in to the premiere of season 18 of 'The Ultimate Fighter' with coaches Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate. Teixeira last competed in May at UFC 160 where he defeated James Te Huna via first-round submission. Bader most recently fought at UFC on FOX 6 in January where he stopped Vladimir Matyushenko inside of a minute.
