Luis Cane Eliot Marshall UFC 128

Luis Cane finishes Eliot Marshall at UFC 128

The upcoming return of the UFC to Brazil is sure to be stocked with plenty of fighters looking to compete in their home country.

The UFC is definitely doing their part to comply as more fights have been confirmed by the promotion for the August show in Rio.

In addition to the confirmation of the previously reported fight between Forrest Griffin and Maurcio “Shogun” Rua, the UFC has now additionally announced Spencer Fisher vs. Thiago Tavares and Luis Cane vs. Stanislav Nedkov.

It’s been a bit of a rough go for Spencer Fisher (24-7) lately, going just 1-3 in his last 4 fights, so a win in Brazil may need to be a certainty to guarantee job security.

As for Thiago Tavares (15-4-1) he returns after a stunning knockout loss to former WEC contender Shane Roller in March. After controlling the early part of the fight, Tavares got caught with a huge punch from the former NCAA All-American, and was finished in the 2nd round.

Luis Cane (11-3) bounced back from back-to-back losses in March when he dispatched of former “Ultimate Fighter” competitor Eliot Marshall. Cane blasted the Colorado based fighter with punches in the first round to pick up his 4th win in the Octagon.

Stanislav Nedkov (11-0) brings a perfect record into his UFC debut. This Bulgarian fighter was supposed to make his first appearance at UFC 117 last year, but an injury forced him out of the fight. Fast forward to over a year later, and Nedkov will finally look to continue his winning ways, this time in the UFC.

More fights are expected to be announced in the coming weeks for the UFC Brazil show.
