A welterweight bout between Erick Silva and Rick Story is slated to headline "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4" finale on June 27, according to a report from Combate.

The matchup has not been formally announced by the UFC. The event is expected to take place in Sao Paulo and will also include the bantamweight and lightweight finals from the reality show. A welterweight matchup pitting Lorenz Larkin against Santiago Ponzinibbio is also slated for the June 27 card.

The 30-year-old Silva has garnered first-round submissions of Mike Rhodes and Josh Koscheck in his last two Octagon appearances. All six of the Brazilian’s UFC triumphs have occurred inside of a round.

Story, meanwhile, has rebounded from a split-decision defeat against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 171 to post back-to-back triumphs over Leonardo Mafra Texeira and Gunnar Nelson. Story also owns notable wins over Johny Hendricks, Thiago Alves and Jake Ellenberger during his pro career.
