Rafael 'Feijao' Cavalcante vs. Igor Pokrajac joins UFC Fight Night 32 lineup

A light-heavyweight bout between Rafael Cavalcante (11-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and Igor Pokrajac (25-10 MMA, 4-5 UFC) is the latest addition to November's recently announced UFC Fight Night 32 event.
UFC officials today announced the bout.
UFC Fight Night 32 takes place Nov. 9 at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil. The bulk of the card airs on FOX Sports 1 following prelims on Facebook.
It's not clear where "Feijao" vs. Pokrajac will be placed on the lineup.
Cavalcante, who fights in his home country, looks for his first UFC win following a promotional-debut knockout loss to Thiago Silva in June. However, the action-packed one-rounder earned both competitors a "Fight of the Night" bonus.
Regardless, Cavalcante has just one win (with two losses and a no-contest due to a failed drug test) in his past four fights, and the former Strikeforce champion likely finds himself in a must-win situation.
Pokrajac, meanwhile, looks for his first win in four fights following a decision loss to Ryan Jimmo in June. Were it not for Joey Beltran's failed drug test and a subsequent no-contest, Pokrajac would be stuck in a three-fight losing streak. Instead the Croatian fighter is 0-2 (with one no-contest) since a 4-1 run that had him moving up the UFC's 205-pound ranks.
