David Mitchell vs Yan Cabral is the last to be added...
MMA Junkie reports that a welterweight fight between David Mitchell (12-3 MMA, 1-3 UFC) and Yan Cabral (10-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has been added to UFC Fight Night 29, finalizing the car with 12 bouts. The event takes place on October 9 at the Jose Correa Arena in Baureri, Sao Paulo, Brazil. Most of the card, including the main event welterweight fight between Jake Shields and Demian Maia, airs on FOX Sports 1 after preliminary fights on Facebook. Mitchell vs Cabral is part of the preliminary fights.
Mitchell started his career at 11-0 but has lost three of his last four fights in the UFC. He followed his first UFC win, a decision win over Simeon Thoresen, with a July TKO loss to Mike Pierce. Meanwhile, Cabral is making his UFC debut and is undefeated with ten wins in ten fights. All of his wins have been by submission, including over Kazushi Sakuraba at DREAM 17. The September 2011 fight is his most recent pro fight, even after winning two fights on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2 before a broken hand forced him out.
