The line-up for UFC Fight Night 32 on November 9th continues to build, as the promotion has reportedly confirmed that Igor Pokrajac will take on former Strikeforce champ Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante.
According to a report from MMA Junkie.com, it remains to be seen whether the light-heavyweight scrap will be placed on the main or preliminary card.
Cavalcante (11-4 / 1 NC) will be looking to rebound from a disappointing UFC debut, as the vet was KO’d by Thiago Silva at a UFC on FUEL TV event in June. Prior to that “Feijao” had his May, 2012, victory over Mike Kyle overturned to a no-contest, after Cavalcante failed his post-fight drug test. The 32 year-old fighter is 2-2 with 1 no contest in his last five bouts.
Pokrajac (25-10 / 1 NC) is likely in a must win situation, as the noted striker is winless in his last three bouts, and is coming off a UD loss to Ryan Jimmo in June. Prior to the setbacks, the 34 year-old “Duke” had won three in a row.
That’s a bout that could feature some interesting exchanges, particularly since both men are in need of a victory. UFC Fight Night 32 will go down at the Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil. Vitor Belfort will battle Dan Henderson in the main event. The card will be broadcast throughout the U.S. on FOX Sports 1.
