Former bantamweight title challenger Marlon Moraes and Cory Sandhagen have verbally agreed to meet in the main event of a UFC Fight Night card on Oct. 10, sources told MMA Junkie's Farah Hannoun.

The UFC has yet to officially announce the event, and its location has not yet been determined.

Moraes is coming off a win over former featherweight champion Jose Aldo at UFC 245 last December. The Brazilian returned to the winning column after losing to Henry Cejudo via third-round TKO in a vacant title fight last summer.

Sandhagen will look to rebound from a first-round submission loss to Aljamain Sterling at UFC 250 in June. That was his first professional defeat. The 28-year-old started his Octagon career with five straight victories, including decisions over Raphael Assuncao and John Lineker.
