The line-up for UFC Fight Night 51 has a new addition, as the promotion has announced that bantamweight Russell Doane will fight Iuri Alcantara at the upcoming event.

The September 13th card will be hosted by the Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.

Doane (14-3) is coming off a split decision win over Marcus Brimage earlier this month, which was his third straight victory. The Hawaiian fighter is 4-1 in his last 5 contests.

Alcantara (30-5) has scored victories over Vaughan Lee and Wilson Reis since he was decisioned by Urijah Faber last August. The Brazilian vet is 3-1, with 1 no contest, in his last 5 scraps.

UFC FN 51 will feature a heavyweight bout between Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Andrei Arlovski in the main event.
