Rafael Cavalcante vs. Igor Pokrajac on tap for UFC FIght Night 32 in Brazil

Loser leaves town?


There's an interesting light heavyweight bangfest bagged and tagged for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 32 event on FOX Sports 1, which takes place at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil, on Nov. 9, 2013.

Rafael Cavalcante vs. Igor Pokrajac.

It has been a rough couple of years for "Feijao" (11-4). Since coughing up his 205-pound title to Dan Henderson under the Strikeforce banner, the Brazilian is 1-1 with one no contest. He rebounded from his "Hendo" loss by planishing Yoel Romero, but saw his win go up in smoke (literally) against Mike Pyle after failing his post-fight drug test.

One year later marked his UFC debut, but he was crushed by Thiago Silva in the opening frame.

Not that it has been all wine and roses for Pokrajac.

"The Duke" (25-10) is 1-2 over his last three and also has a no contest, courtesy of Joey Beltran's drug test fiasco. The aging Croatian hasn't seen the win column since May of 2012 and is fresh off a unanimous decision loss to Ryan Jimmo at UFC 161.

Loser leaves town?

UFC Fight Night 32 will be headlined by a light heavyweight rematch pitting former PRIDE FC rivals Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson in the main event. Cezar Ferreira vs. Daniel Sarafian are also slated to hook 'em up.

Stay tuned to for more updates to UFC Fight Night 32 as they become available.
