UFC veterans Luiz Cane, Rodney Wallace headline event in Brazil

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

New MMA promotion Standout Fighting Tournament will have its first show Sept. 20 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and has signed UFC veterans Luiz "Banha" Cane and Rodney Wallace to headline their show.

Cane, a 32-year-old Sao Paulo native, reeled off three straight wins in the UFC light heavyweight division in 2008-09, finishing the likes of Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou and Jason Lambert, but he wasn’t the same since.

After three losses in four bouts, "Banha" decided to drop to middleweight and ended up being released from the UFC after suffering a unanimous decision loss to Chris Camozzi. He will return to the 205-pound division to meet Wallace.

Wallace, one year younger than the Brazilian, fought in the UFC in 2009-10. Following a decision loss to Brian Stann in his Octagon debut, the Chute Boxe fighter was released from the promotion after losses to Jared Hamman and Phil Davis.

Wallace went 10-3-1 since the release and is undefeated over his last six bouts.

In the co-main event, MMA veteran Flavio Alvaro looks for his 45th win in 55 bouts against Sergio Soares (10-5). Thomas Almeida (13-0), a bantamweight prospect from Chute Boxe, is also confirmed for the card, but is still waiting for his opponent.

Check below the complete card of Standout Fighting Tournament, which will also holds a submission contest between TUF Brazil 2 alums David Vieira and Viscardi Andrade:

Luiz Cane vs Rodney Wallace
Flavio Álvaro vs Sergio Soares
Munil Adriano vs Janio Mancha
Diogo Cavalcanti vs Carlos Prates
