The UFC has added a bantamweight fight to UFC Fight Night 32 in Goiania, Brazil on November 9th. In addition to that, a lightweight bout has been changed due to an injury. First off let's get to the new booking, confirmed by the UFC's Brazil twitter account. If you can't read Portuguese, Lucas Martins will be facing off with Johnny Eduardo:

After going 1-1 as a lightweight, Martins (14-1) dropped two weight classes to 135 pounds and picked up a 70-second submission win over Junior Hernandez at UFC Fight Night 28 earlier this month. Eduardo (26-9) hasn't competed in over 18 months in the octagon due to injuries. His last bout came at UFC on Fuel 3 where he defeated Jeff Curran by decision. He's 1-1 in the UFC overall.

As mentioned, a lightweight bout on the card has been shook up as well. Former Strikeforce fighter Quinn Mulhern (18-3) has been forced out of his second bout in a row due to injuries. In his place, Justin Salas (11-4, 2-1 UFC) will step in to face Thiago Tavares (17-5-1. 7-5-1 UFC). Tavares is coming off a suspension due to a positive test for Drostanolone after a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in January.
