The main event will feature a light showdown between top potential Italo Gomes and Melquizael “Melk” Costa. The complete main card will be available worldwide at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. on UFC FIGHT PASS®.
“We had a change at the top of LFA 132, but we are excited to bring another stacked event to Brazil in May 13,” Soares said. “Italo Gomes will now face Melquizael Costa in Brazil’s battle for two of the fastest growing lightweight prospects.
The most high-profile lightweight match in Brazil this year and the winner will take himself to the top of the division. Our first three events in Brazil were amazing and we look forward to continuing our improvement in the country at LFA 132. ”
Gomes (10-2) is a 25-year-old prospect from the Brazilian coastal municipality of Macae. The city is generally regarded as the center of Brazil’s offshore petroleum industry and is often referred to as “Cidade do Petróleo” (“City of Petroleum”). Similarly, Gomes has emerged as the latest top asset in his country’s legendary MMA scene.
Costa (17-4) has been one of the most exciting prospects to leave Brazil in recent years, and he was keen to set foot in the main event slot of LFA 132 when Lídio withdrew. The man also known as “Melk” is a resident of Bauru Municipality, which is located in the midwestern part of the state of São Paulo.
