Bantamweights Pedro Munhoz and Jimmie Rivera are set to run it back.

They’ll meet at a UFC Fight Night event Jan. 30. A location and venue have not been announced, but the card is likely to stream on ESPN+.

Two people with knowledge of the booking informed MMA Junkie on Saturday but asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

In November 2015, Rivera (23-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) edged Munhoz in a back-and-forth battle at UFC Fight Night 77. Since then, Rivera has gone 5-3, most recently snapping a two-fight losing skid with a unanimous decision win over Cody Stamann at UFC on ESPN 13 in July.

After notching three straight wins, including a knockout over former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt, Munhoz (18-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC) has dropped two in a row to current title challenger Aljamain Sterling and former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.

The latest lineup for UFC’s Jan. 30 event includes:

Kelvin Gastelum vs. Ian Heinisch Matt Brown vs. Carlos Condit Viviane Araujo vs. Roxanne Modafferi Vinicius Moreira vs. Ike Villanueva Ode Osbourne vs. Jerome Rivera Zarrukh Adashev vs. Jeffrey Molina Pedro Munoz vs. Jimmie Rivera MORE:
