The UFC Fight Night 119 lineup continues to grow, as the promotion on Thursday announced three new contests for the Oct. 28 card in Sao Paulo.

Hacran Dias will meet Jared Gordon at featherweight; Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos will face Max Griffin at welterweight and Luan Chagas will take on Niko Price at 170 pounds. UFC Fight Night 119 takes place at Ibirapuera Gymnasium and is headlined by a middleweight showdown between Lyoto Machida and Derek Brunson.

Dias enters his bout on a two-fight skid after dropping a pair of decisions to Andre Fili and Cub Swanson. Gordon, meanwhile, improved to 13-1 with a second-round stoppage of Michel Quinones in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 112.

Zaleski has won three straight in the Octagon, including a split verdict over Lyman Good at UFC on Fox 25. After falling to Colby Covington in his debut, Griffin scored a 54-second TKO against Erick Montano at UFC Fight Night 89 to earn his first promotional triumph.

Chagas last appeared at UFC 212, where he submitted Jim Wallhead in the second round on June 3. Price is 11-0 as a professional and has finished Alan Jouban, Alex Morono and Brandon Thatch in UFC competition.
