A pair of ranked lightweights will square off when Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira headline UFC's March 14 event in Brazil, Guilherme Cruz and Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com report.

Lee is ranked fifth in the division after securing a head kick knockout of Gregor Gillespie in the first round of their November bout. He had dropped his two previous welterweight fights.

Oliveira is riding a six-fight win streak in the UFC. He stopped Jared Gordon via first-round KO in their November meeting and has yet to go past the second round in any of his last six bouts.

Demian Maia versus Gilbert Burns will serve as the co-main event, according to Cruz and Martin. The card also includes Johnny Walker's return to the Octagon against Nikita Krylov and a women's strawweight fight between Paige VanZant and Amanda Ribas.
