The UFC is always sure to book Brazilians when the organization rolls through the South American nation for a show and the same will be true come October 9 at UFC Fight Night 29. Though the clashes attached to the card thus far have pitted competitors from the country against those from an opposing nation, at least one match-up will feature an all-Brazil affair.
According to a report from O Dia having since been confirmed by multiple outlets, featherweights Hacran Dias and Rodrigo Damm will lock horns at the event. An official announcement is expected in the coming weeks.
Dias had a nine-fight run snapped by Nik Lentz in May and will no doubt be anxious to get back on the winning track. He is 21-2-1 in his career with nines submission victories to his credit.
The 11-6 Damm has won two of three tilts since signing with the UFC. He was last seen picking up a Split Decision nod over Mizuto Hirota.
