The UFC has added another middleweight clash to its return to Madison Square Garden.

Former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks is set to take on rising prospect Paulo Borrachinha in a 185-pound bout on Nov. 4, multiple sources close to the situation confirmed the news to MMA Fighting following a report by Combate.

UFC 207 is expected to feature middleweight champion Michael Bisping against Georges St-Pierre in the main event in New York.

Hendricks (18-7) has only won two of six fights since losing his UFC title back in 2014, recently missing weight and losing via second-round TKO to Tim Boetsch.

Borrachinha (10-0) finished Oluwale Bamgbose and Garreth McLellan in his first appearances inside the Octagon. Borrachinha only went past the first round once in his professional career.
