Bryan Caraway (21-7) is set to return after a 19-month layoff at a UFC Fight Night on Dec 9. Caraway has won four out of five, including a win in his last fight over Aljamain Sterling in May 2016.
Caraway was supposed to face Jimmie Rivera at UFC Fight Night 103, but was removed due to injury. Rivera would go on to defeat Thomas Almeida in July to setup his fight with ex-champion Dominick Cruz at UFC 219.
Sanders, meanwhile, suffered the first loss of his career his last fight to a kneebar by Iuri Alcantra. He was set to face Felipe Arantes last month but Arantes was removed due to injury.
Cub Swanson and Brian Ortega will headline the UFC Fight Night event.
