By FCF Staff
It looks as though the November 9th, UFC Fight Night 32 card in Goiania, Brazil, has a new addition, as Paulo Thiago is reporting that he’s fighting welterweight Brandon Thatch at the event.
The 32 year-old Thiago (15-5) has announced the bout via Twitter, however, the UFC has not confirmed the bout as of Saturday afternoon. The Brazilian vet is coming off a unanimous decision win over Michel Richard dos Prazeres at UFC on FX 8 in Mas, after losing back-to-back bouts to Dong Hyun Kim and Siyar Bahadurzada. The welterweight was initially scheduled to fight Kelvin Gastelum at UFC FN 27 in August, but withdrew due to an injury.
Thatch (10-1) made his UFC debut at UFC FN 27 last month and quickly stopped Justin Edwards. The Grudge Training Center fighter is currently riding a nine fight win streak.
UFC FN 32 will see Dan Henderson battle Vitor Belfort in the main event, which will take place at heavyweight. Other confirmed bouts include Daniel Sarafian vs. Cezar Ferreira and Igor Pokrajac vs. Rafael Cavalcante.
