UFC Fight Night 32 adds Thiago vs. Thatch, Pepey vs. Sicilia for Nov. 9 in Brazil

The "Belfort vs. Henderson" event in Goiania bolsters its line up with a couple of hometown boys...

With less than two months to go, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is slowly but surely populating its upcoming UFC Fight Night 32 fight card and line up, scheduled to go down at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil, on Nov. 9, 2013, via FOX Sports 1.

First up is a welterweight clash pitting longtime 170-pound veteran Paulo Thiago (15-5), who looks to build off his unanimous decision win over Michel Prazeres earlier this year in Santa Catarina by turning away once-beaten Brandon Thatch (10-1), who caused a "Ruckus" by blowing the doors off Justin Edwards last month in Indianapolis.

That's not all.

Godofredo Castro (9-2) will try to return to the featherweight win column (via Globo) after a disappointing performance on FUEL TV last June in Fortaleza. "Pepey" was finished in the first round by Felipe Arantes. Waiting to greet him will be Sam Sicilia (11-3), who could be on the chopping block after consecutive losses to Rony Jason and Maximo Blanco.

Brazil card = lots of Brazilian fighters.

That includes the UFC Fight Night 32 main event, which will feature a monster light heavyweight rematch pitting Vitor Belfort against Dan Henderson in the top slot, as "The Phenom" looks to get one back from "Hendo" after a decision loss during the PRIDE FC days.

And the victor could find themselves in line for a 185-pound title shot.

In the co-main event, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil" middleweight winner, Cezar Ferreira, will attempt to settle his unfinished business with Daniel Sarafian, who was replaced by eventual tournament runner-up Sergio Moraes in the finale because of an injury.
