The UFC Belem card now includes 12 bouts with the addition of Tim Means vs. Sergio Moraes and Marlon Vera vs. Douglas Silva de Andrade. The company announced both match-ups following reports by Combate.

The Fight Night show will take place at the Mangueirinho Gymnasium in Belem, Brazil, on Feb. 3.

Means (27-9-1, 1 no-contest) returns to Brazil almost a year after his loss to Alex Oliveira in Fortaleza last March. Since that bout, the welterweight talent defeated Alex Garcia and lost to Belal Muhammad.

Moraes (12-3-1) is a TUF Brazil middleweight finalist who was unbeaten in seven fights as a welterweight in the UFC, including a quick submission win over Neil Magny, but recently suffered a first-round knockout against Kamaru Usman.

Vera (12-4-1) had a three-fight winning streak snapped in November, when he lost a decision to John Lineker in Brazil in November. The Ecuador native finished Brad Pickett and Brian Kelleher prior to his defeat.

Andrade (24-2, 1 no-contest) is also looking to get back on track following a submission loss to Rob Font. Born in Castanhal, 45 miles away from Belem, “D’Silva” went 2-2 inside the Octagon after joining the company with a perfect 20-0 record.
