The UFC is continuing to announce fights for their upcoming events, and the Fight Night card in Natal, Brazil has a new addition. According to MMAFighting.com, a middleweight match up between The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 1 winner Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira and former TUF runner-up C.B. Dollaway has been added to the card.

“I was anxious to get back to the Octagon and I think CB Dollaway is a good opponent,” Ferreira told MMAFighting.com. “He has a lot of experience in the UFC. It will be a great fight. I’m training hard to do my best.

“Every win will help me achieve my goal. I’m working to get to the top-10 and I will fight whoever I have to fight to get there.”

Mutante is on a three-fight winning streak since joining the UFC, while Dollaway is looking to rebound from a split-decision loss to Tim Boetsch at UFC 166.

The UFC previously announced a light heavyweight battle between Fabio Maldonado and Gian Villante for the same yet to be announced event. We will pass along more information on the Brazil show as it becomes available.
