In a bit of an experience mismatch, Brand Thatch’s second UFC fight will be against longtime UFC vet Paulo Thiago at UFC Fight Night 32.
Thiago confirmed the news on Twitter.
Thatch is on a hell of a roll, winning his last nine including his UFC debut, where he destroyed Justin Edwards en route to a “Knockout of the Night” bonus. He is currently 10-1 in his career.
Paulo Thiago is a longtime UFC fighter with 10 fights in the promotion. He most recently broke an almost two year losing streak, taking a decision over Michael Prazeres at UFC on FX 8. His record now stands at 15-5.
UFC Fight Night 32 will take place on November 9 at the Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil. It will be headlined by a bout between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson, and will air live on FOX Sports 1.
The current card is as follows:
• Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson
• Cezar Ferreira vs. Daniel Sarafian
• Rafael Cavalcante vs. Igor Pokrajac
• Quinn Mulhern vs. Thiago Tavares
• Brandon Thatch vs. Paulo Thiago
• Ryan LaFlare vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio
