Two more Brazilians have been added to the UFC 142 fight card, as undefeated heavyweight Edinaldo Oliveira will face England’s Rob Broughton and Felipe Arantes will welcome Canadian featherweight Antonio Carvalho to the UFC, according to ESPN UK and The Canadian Press.
Broughton (15-7-1) fought on short-notice earlier this month at UFC 138, dropping a unanimous decision to Philip De Fries for his second-straight loss, while Oliveira (13-0-1), a training partner of new UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, has scored stoppages in 10 of his 13 wins.
Arantes (13-4) dropped a unanimous decision to Yuri Alcantara as he debuted on short-notice at UFC 134 in August in place of an injured Carvalo (13-4), who enters the UFC on a three-fight win streak.
UFC 142 is topped by featherweight champion Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes and currently features one Brazilian in every bout, including Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony Johnson and Thiago Tavares vs. Sam Stout.
