Uberlandia, Minas Gerais is expected to host a Fight Night card on Nov. 8. The 8,000-seat Tancredo Neves gymnasium, also known as Sabiazinho, will be the venue for the UFN card.

The UFC’s last card in 2014 is planned for Dec. 20, and it will be a Fight Night show in Barueri, Sao Paulo. The Jose Correa gymnasium hosted the UFN 29 card this past October, attracting 6,621 fans to a main event between Demian Maia and Jake Shields.
