Hacran Dias vs. Rodrigo Damm set for UFC Fight Night 29 in Brazil

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Hacran Dias and Rodrigo Damm are set to face off in a Brazil vs. Brazil battle at UFC Fight Night 29 in October.

UFC cards in Brazil generally feature Brazilian fighters versus fighters from the rest of the world, but a featherweight bout that has been added to UFC Fight Night 29 is Brazil vs. Brazil. Hacran Dias will face off with Rodrigo Damm on the October 9th card. The news was first reported by O Dia, and was confirmed by MMA Fighting.

Dias (21-2-1) is 1-1 in the UFC thus far, taking out Yuri Alcantara by decision in his debut, but dropping a decision to Nik Lentz in his last bout. Damm (11-6) previously fought for Sengoku and Strikeforce before becoming a contestant on the first Ultimate Fighter Brazil show. He's 2-1 in the UFC thus far, with wins over Anistavio Medeiros and Mizuto Hirota. His lone loss came via split decision to Antonio Carvalho.

It is unclear at this point if the bout will be on the main card of the show or not. The event will be headlined by a welterweight bout between Demian Maia and Jake Shields.
