A middleweight fight between Thiago Santos and Eric Spicely is headed to Brasilia next month, with the UFC announcing this weekend that the two will meet at UFC Fight Night 95 on Sept. 24.
The 32-year-old Santos had a four-fight winning streak snapped in July when he was knocked out by Gegard Mousasi at UFC 200. He’s won five of eight fights inside the Octagon, stopping four opponents in that time. He’s picked up several highlights in those wins, including one of 2015’s best knockouts in his head kick over Steve Bosse.
Spicely makes his second appearance in the Octagon after his time on The Ultimate Fighter 23. His debut came at UFC Fight Night 91 last month, where he was submitted by Sam Alvey in the first round.
UFC Fight Night 95 airs live on Fox Sports 1 from Brazil, headlined by the 140 lb. catchweight fight between Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino and Lina Lansberg.
