Thursday Morning Fight Update

The UFC's stacked November slate received two new additions, with top bantamweight and featherweight prospects set to make their way to Brazil and Mexico for UFC Fight Night events.

In a 135-pound matchup at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo on November 7, Jimmie Rivera will attempt to extend his remarkable 16-fight winning streak in a three-rounder against Pedro Munhoz, who is coming off back-to-back Octagon finishes of Matt Hobar and Jerrod Sanders.

Two weeks later, on November 21, Mexico's own Gabriel Benitez will step into the Octagon at Arena Monterrey in Monterrey to battle fellow featherweight up and comer Andre Fili. Benitez has impressed in his UFC run thus far with wins over Humberto Brown and Clay Collard, and it will be up to Team Alpha Male's Fili to put a stop to the winning streak of "Moggly."

Both events air live on FOX Sports 1.
