UFC Fight Night 32 card is complete with 12 bouts as the promotion announced the bantamweight fight between Lucas Martins and Johnny Eduardo. UFC officials also announced on Friday that Justin Salas replaces Quinn Mulhern against Thiago Tavares in a lightweight contest.
Martins (14-1) made a successful 135-pound debut with a 70-second submission win over Junior Hernandez at UFC Fight Night 28, four months after a knockout victory over Jeremy Larsen in the lightweight division.
Eduardo (26-9) finally makes his return to the Octagon 18 months after an unanimous decision victory over Jeff Curran at UFC on Fuel TV 3. Eduardo was expected to face Yves Jabouin at UFC 158, but was pulled out of the card with a shoulder injury.
Tavares (17-5-1) returns to the cage after a nine-month suspension for testing positive for drostanolone following his first-round knockout loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov. That loss snapped Tavares’ two-fight winning streak after victories over Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher.
