The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to round out the line-up for the promotion’s upcoming November 9th event in Goiania, Brazil, as a flyweight bout between Dustin Ortiz and Jose Maria has been booked.

UFC Fight Night 32 will be hosted by the city’s Goiania Arena and will feature a light-heavyweight bout between accomplished vets Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson.

Maria (33-4) is coming off his Octagon debut in August, and was stopped by top ten ranked John Lineker at UFC 163. Prior to the defeat, the Brazilian had gone undefeated in 17 straight bouts.

Ortiz (11-2) heads to the UFC having won three straight fights and has gone 4-1 in his last five. The Roufusport flyweight is a Strikeforce vet, whose only losses to date have come against Josh Robinson and UFC contender Ian McCall.

UFC FN 32 will be broadcast throughout the U.S. on FOX Sports 1.
