UFC on Fox 9 in Sacramento is quickly shaping up as one of the better cards of the year, and the promotion has decided to pile on by adding another intriguing lightweight matchup. Team Alpha Male fighter Danny Castillo will meet nasty Brazilian striker Edson Barboza. The UFC recently tweeted confirmation of the fight:

Castillo (16-5) has been doing very well of late, picking up wins in each of his last two bouts and five of six overall. The last was a unanimous decision victory over Tim Means at UFC on Fox 8 in July.

Barboza (12-1) has also won two in a row, the last being a TKO via brutal leg kicks against Rafaello Oliveira at UFC 162 in July. He is 6-1 in the UFC overall with four stoppages and four performance bonuses.
