The main event at UFC Fight Night 88 will pit Thomas Almeida against Cody Garbrandt in a key bantamweight showdown.

But that will not be the only 135-pound match between Top-10 fighters on the docket, as Aljamain Sterling fights Bryan Caraway May 29 from Las Vegas. Newsday first reported the contest on Thursday.

Sterling (12-0) is a perfect 4-0 inside the Octagon, signing a new fight contract following his win over Johnny Eduardo in December. His other UFC victories have come vs. Takeya Mizugaki, Hugo Viana and Cody Gibson.

Caraway (20-7) has won six of his last eight, including a July victory vs. Eddie Wineland. Caraway, of course, is the long-time boyfriend of current UFC champion Miesha Tate.
