Middleweights and Lightweights Head to Tampa

Two bouts have been added to the UFC's visit to Tampa on April 16, as TUF Brazil winner Cezar "Mutante" Ferreira returns to the middleweight division to face countryman Caio Magalhaes and Drew Dober battles Islam Makhachev in a lightweight matchup.

In the FOX-televised main event at Amalie Arena unbeaten powerhouse Khabib "The Eagle" Nurmagomedov takes on former Ultimate Fighter winner Tony "El Cucuy" Ferguson. Plus Rashad Evans meets "Shogun" Rua and Lyoto Machida squares off with Dan Henderson.

A member of the UFC roster since 2012, Ferreira won four bouts at 185 pounds before a loss at welterweight to Jorge Masvidal last July. Now back in the middleweight division, he will take on "Hellboy" Magalhaes in what promises to be an explosive showdown.

Looking to bounce back from an upset loss to Adriano Martins, highly-regarded prospect Makhachev will be in tough once more against Dober, who is coming off a January win over Scott Holtzman.
