Paul Craig's rematch with Mauricio Rua will be on 21 November in Las Vegas - just over a year after their first fight in Brazil ended in a draw.
The Scot went close to what would have been the biggest win of his UFC career when he stepped in to face the Brazilian as a late replacement.
But after three rounds, two judges scored the contest 29-28 to each man, with a third calling it 28-28.
"I wish I had done better," the Airdrie fighter said after the first fight.
"A draw is not good enough. I was coming here to retire him. I'm sorry guys."
Craig last fought in July when he beat Gadzhimurad Antigulov with a first-round submission to take his record to five wins and a draw in 10 UFC fights.
