For a card that has yet to be formally announced, it certainly is filling up in a hurry.
UFC Fight Night 38 is expected to take place on March 23, 2014 inside the Nelio Dias Gymnasium in Natal, Brazil, with a flyweight match-up pitting Scott Jorgensen against Jussier Formiga. MMA Fighting (via MMA Informative) brought word of the booking earlier today.
Jorgensen (14-8) could be looking at his final fight inside the Octagon if he's unable to secure a win. Despite early success under the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) banner, "Young Guns" has lost four of his last five, including his 125-pound debut against Zach Machovsky.
Do or die.
Also teetering on the edge of unemployment is Jussier da Silva (15-3). Despite an exceptional 14-1 record on the international circuit, "Formiga" has been unable to replicate that success under the ZUFFA banner, going 1-2 and being finished in both losses.
It's now or never.
In addition to a light heavyweight bangfest between Fabio Maldonado and Gian Villante, UFC Fight Night 38 is also expected to feature a middleweight mash-up pitting C.B. Dollaway against fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) grad Cezar Ferreira.
