May’s UFC on FX 8 event in Brazil has a new addition: Cezar “Mutant” Ferreira (5-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) vs. fellow middleweight C.B. Dollaway (13-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC).
UFC on FX 8 takes place May 18 at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil. The event’s main card airs live on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.
It’s not clear where Dollaway-Ferreira will be placed on the lineup.
The well-rounded Ferreira recently won “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” in 2012 with a decision victory over Sergio Moraes in the tournament final. It moved him to 4-1 over the past three years. The Moraes victory was his first to go to a decision.
Dollaway, a “TUF 7? runner-up, recently earned a split-decision win over Daniel Sarafia in a “Fight of the Night” co-headliner at UFC on FX 7 in January. The NCAA Division I All-American wrestler is now 2-0 since a two-fight skid (to Mark Munoz and Jared Hamman) that had his job in jeopardy.
