Another TUF Brazil 2 contestant has signed with the UFC.

Undefeated welterweight Yan Cabral makes his UFC debut on Oct. 9 against David Mitchell. UFC Fight Night 29 takes place in Barueri, Brazil, and is headlined by the welterweight contest between Demian Maia and Jake Shields. Lance! first reported the bout.

Cabral, 10-0 in MMA with 10 submissions, makes his first Octagon appearance six years after his professional debut. The jiu-jitsu ace made the second season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil two years after submitting Kazushi Sakuraba in Japan. Cabral won two fights inside the show, but was eliminated because of a broken hand...

Please note that he defeated the shell of Sakuraba much like Mayhem did.
