The UFC Fight Night card headed to Brazil on Feb 15 has added a pair of new bouts including recent winners Viscardi Andrade facing Nicholas 'Nico' Musoke as well as former Ultimate Fighter competitors Cristiano Marcello taking on Joe Proctor.

Andrade makes his second appearance inside the UFC Octagon in February after an impressive knockout win over Bristol Marunde in his debut last August. It took Andrade only 96 seconds to dispatch of the former Ultimate Fighter contender, and now he'll look to make another impressive showing when he faces Swedish fighter Nico Musoke at UFC Fight Night in Brazil.

Musoke made an equally impressive debut when he took on veteran Alessio Sakara in October, taking out the Italian born fighter with an armbar in the first round of their bout.

Also added to the card is former Chute Boxe coach Cristiano Marcello taking on fellow former Ultimate Fighter housemate Joe Proctor. Both fighters lived in The Ultimate Fighter house during the lone live season of the show, and now they will square off in the Octagon in Marcello's backyard of Brazil.

More fights for the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Brazil are expected to be added in the coming days.
