The UFC has added another bout to their February card in Brazil.
MMA veteran Felipe Arantes will take on fellow Brazilian and former Lightweight King of Pancrase title holder Maximo Blanco at UFC Fight Night 36, which takes place Feb. 15, at the Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Caarina, Brazil.
Both fighters come into the with losses: Blanco was disqualified in his fight against Akira Corassani while Arantes lost a split-decision against Kevin Souza.
Both Blanco and Arantes have good striking and grappling skills; however the King of Pancrase, who is 1-3 in his UFC run so far, could be motivated to finish the fight quickly as he could face being cut from the UFC roster.
