UFC-Fight-Night-LogoThe UFC added two fights to its Sept. 13 Fight Night card in Brasilia, Brazil, the promotion announced on Monday afternoon.

Bouts added include a men’s welterweight affair between Igor Araujo and George Sullivan, as well as a women’s bantamweight bout between Jessica Andrade and Valerie Letourneau.

Araujo (26-6, 1 NC) is a winner of six consecutive fights, two of which came within the confines of the Octagon. In in last outing, Araujo went the distance with Danny Mitchell at last March’s UFC Fight Night London, picking up a unanimous decision.

Sullivan (15-3, 1 NC) is coming off a win in his Octagon debut in January, earning a unanimous decision over Mike Rhodes at UFC on FOX 10.

Andrade (11-3) has won two in a row since losing her UFC debut to Liz Carmouche in July of 2013. In a split decision, Andrade picked up a win in her last contest, which took place at UFC 171 against Raquel Pennington.

Letourneau (6-3) is one fight deep in the Octagon, and will look to build on her debut win with UFC Fight Night Brasilia.

The Sept. 13 card is scheduled to be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Andrei Arlovski and Antonio Silva, a UFC official confirmed.
