Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

The Dragon vs The Dreamcatcher has been confirmed for an upcoming event in Brazil.

Last week, former Light Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida made his debut as a Middleweight at UFC Fight Night 30. He quickly disposed of opponent Mark Munoz with a vicious headkick that finished the fight in the first round. Following such an impressive debut, many were wondering what would be next for The Dragon.

After the bout, UFC president Dana White a potential fight with Vitor Belfort. However, another challenger appeared when former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi called out Machida on Twitter. Now, Combate has confirmed that Mousasi got what he asked for.

Machida and Mousasi will square off as the main event of an upcoming UFC show in Jaragua do Sul in Brazil. This will be another "Fight Night" event broadcast on FS2. This will be Mousasi's debut as a UFC Middleweight, although he has fought in the division before.
