Lightweights Evan Dunham and Rafael dos Anjos are reportedly set to meet this May in Brazil. It is unclear where the bout will land on the fight card. Globo TV first reported the pairing.
Evan Dunham recently recovered from a UFC 152 loss to T.J. Grant with a split decision victory over Gleison Tibau at UFC 156. Rafael dos Anjos has won three straight since coming out on the wrong end of a 2011 split decision to Tibau. The talented Brazilian will look to make a statement when he faces Dunham.
UFC on FX 8 will be headlined by another middleweight scrap between former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold and Vitor Belfort. The event will take place at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil.
