Thatch vs. Thiago, Sicilia vs. Castro added to UFN 32

Guilherme Cruz, MMA Fighting

A pair of fights have been added to UFC Fight Night 32 in Goiania, Brazil.

Paulo Thiago, who was forced to withdraw from his bout against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 27 with an injury, announced on his Twitter that he will return to the Octagon on Nov. 9 against Brandon Thatch. Godofredo Castro vs. Sam Sicilia, originally planned to UFC Fight Night 28, is rebooked to UFN 32 now that Pepey has recovered from his injury.

Combate first reported the news.

Following back-to back-losses to Siyar Bahadurzada and Dong Hyun Kim, Thiago returned to the win column with a unanimous decision victory over Michel Prazeres at UFC on FX 8, last May, and looks for his sixth win in his 11th UFC bout.

Coming off nine consecutive wins, Thatch made his UFC debut against Justin Edwards on Aug. 28 at UFC Fight Night 27, and has earned the Knockout of the Night bonus for his first-round TKO win.

Castro, TUF Brazil’s season one finalist in the featherweight division, looks to bounce back from a first-round knockout loss to Felipe Arantes. Castro is 1-2 in the UFC, with his only win coming with a unanimous decision victory over Milton Vieira last January.

Sicilia, also forced to pull out from his Sept. 4 bout with an injury, returns to the cage with his back against the wall after suffering two consecutive losses inside the Octagon. The Washington-native featherweight, who defeated Cristiano Marcelo in his UFC debut, looks to bounce back following losses to Rony Mariano and Maximo Blanco.

UFN 32 is headlined by the light-heavyweight bout between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson. TUF Brazil 1 original finalists Cezar Ferreira and Daniel Sarafian meet in the co-main event.
