UFC officials announced the new bout on Thursday.
Reis (17-4) is a Bellator veteran that has been on a hot streak since exiting that promotion in 2011. He has reeled off five consecutive victories, including his Octagon debut. Reis won a unanimous decision victory over Ivan Menjivar at UFC 165 at September’s pay-per-view event in Toronto.
He’ll try to keep the momentum building against Alcantara, who is looking to get back on track.
Alcantara (28-5) has been on a rocky road, amassing a record of three wins, two losses and one no contest during his UFC tenure. He is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to Urijah Faber at UFC Fight Night 26 in August in Boston.
