The UFC’s unannounced fight card in Brazil has another bout in the works.
The UFC has yet to announce the Fight Night card on March 23 in Natal, Brazil, but TUF: Brazil 1 winner Cezar Ferreira has confirmed to MMAFighting.com that he has agreed to take on CB Dollaway in his home country.
Contracts are expected to be signed soon, "Mutante" revealed. Combate first reported the news.
Ferreira (7-2), the winner of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter in Brazil, is undefeated inside the Octagon with wins over Sergio Moraes, Thiago Santos and Daniel Sarafian, all contested in Brazil.
"I was anxious to get back to the Octagon and I think CB Dollaway is a good opponent," Ferreira told MMAFighting.com. "He has a lot of experience in the UFC. It will be a great fight. I’m training hard to do my best.
"Every win will help me achieve my goal. I’m working to get to the top-10 and I will fight whoever I have to fight to get there."
In his only trip to Brazil, Dollaway defeated TUF veteran Daniel Sarafian via split decision last January. "Mutante" knows, Dollaway won’t be an easy opponent.
"He’s a well-rounded fighter with a good wrestling, and he will use that against me," Ferreira said. "I will be ready everywhere there fight goes. Actually, I’m going there to knock him out."
