Vicente Luque and Belal Muhammad will headline a UFC Fight Night card on April 16, sources told ESPN's Brett Okamoto.

The promotion has yet to announce a venue or location for the event.

The welterweight bout will serve as a rematch from 2016 when Luque scored a first-round knockout over Muhammad at UFC 205.

Luque (21-7-1) is ranked No. 4 in the 170-pound division. The Brazilian finished his opponent in each of his last four fights, including first-round submissions of Michael Chiesa and Tyron Woodley. "The Silent Assassin" has recorded 14 finishes in his UFC career.

Muhammad (20-3-0) will enter the Octagon on a two-fight win streak after picking up a no-contest decision versus Leon Edwards last March. The No. 5-ranked contender hasn't lost since dropping a unanimous decision to Geoff Neal at a Fight Night card in 2019.
