Damir Hadzovic vs. Alan Patrick ticketed for UFC Fight Night 125 in Brazil

The UFC’s return to Brazil in February continues to build with the addition of a lightweight fight.

Damir Hadzovic (11-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will head into hostile territory to take on Brazil’s Alan Patrick (14-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 125. Hadzovic announced the previously reported fight on social media, though the UFC has not yet made a formal announcement of the booking.

UFC Fight Night 125 takes place Feb. 3 in Belem, Brazil. The card will air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Alan Patrick

Patrick has back-to-back decision wins following the first loss of his professional career, which came by TKO against Mairbek Taisumov in June 2015 at UFC Fight Night 69 in Berlin. He was 12-0 prior to that, including wins in his first two UFC fights. After that loss, he picked up wins over Damien Brown and Stevie Ray in 2016, but has been out of action now for nearly 15 months.

Hadzovic got back in the win column in May with a bonus-winning knockout of Marcin Held just seven seconds into the third round in Sweden. The stunning finish got him back on track after a first-round konckout loss to Taisumov more than 13 months prior in his UFC debut, a setback that snapped a six-fight winning streak.
