Hacran Dias vs. Manny Gamburyan Added UFC on FX 8
By Timothy J. Gilbert
Another addition to the UFC on FX 8 fight card has been announced today. This time it is featherweights Hacran Dias and Manny Gamburyan who will meet inside the octagon in their preliminary bout.
The fight was first publicized by SportTv.com, a Brazilian media outlet, although no official announcement has come from the UFC.
Dias (21-1-1) is currently on a nine fight winning streak, although only one of those wins came under UFC sponsorship. Dias was scheduled to fight Chad Mendes at UFC on FX 6, although a right shoulder injury forced him to withdraw.
Meanwhile Gamburyan (12-7) is coming off of a big unanimous decision win to Michihiro Omigawa after losing three consecutive fights to Jose Aldo, Tyson Griffin and Diego Nunes.
UFC on FX 8 is scheduled to take place at the Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil on May 18.
