Mixed martial arts career
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Cane was TKO'ed by Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the first round of their fight on November 21, 2009, at UFC 106. A left hook to the jaw sent Cane to the floor as Nogueira finished with a series of punches on the ground.
Cane was expected to face Karlos Vemola on March 19, 2011 at UFC 128. However, Vemola was forced from the bout with an injury and replaced by Eliot Marshall. He won the fight via TKO in the first round.
Cane was expected to make his middleweight debut against Yushin Okami on August 11, 2012 at UFC 150. However, Cane was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Rousimar Palhares. Rusimar Palhares was forced out of the bout because of injury and was later replaced by Buddy Roberts.
Cane fought Chris Camozzi on October 13, 2012 at UFC 153 in his middleweight debut. Despite a strong first round, he ultimately lost the fight via unanimous decision. Following the loss he was released from the UFC.
Cane is known to dislike UFC fighters Thiago Silva and Wanderlei Silva, due to issues back in Brazil. However, it seems that he and Thiago Silva are now good friends, since he helped Silva train for his fight with Lyoto Machida at UFC 94 and together went to a commemoration to celebrate one year of the trainer Stéfane Dias in American Top Team, the team with which he is now affiliated. Luiz trains in the gym fighter Demian Maia in Sao Paulo.
