A pair of light heavyweights in need of a win will square off this November at UFC Fight Night 32, as Rafael Cavalcante meets Igor Pokrajac.
UFC officials confirmed the fight for November 9 from Brazil’s Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias. Placement of it on the fight card is currently unknown.
Cavalcante (11-4) was defeated by Ryan Jimmo in his Octagon debut earlier this year. He is a former Strikeforce champion, but has posted just a 1-2 record with one no-contest since winning the title in 2010 from Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.
Pokrajac (25-10) has had similar failures as of late, going 0-2 with a no-contest that was originally a loss before Joey Beltran failed his post-fight drug test. He did post three straight wins in the UFC from 2011-early 2012.
