Diego Brandao, who was a winner of The Ultimate Fighter, sent out a message on Twitter saying he will be returning to action later this year. Brandao posted that he is set to face Joey Gambino at UFC 153.
UFC 153 goes down October 13 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The main event is scheduled to feature UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo defending his title against Erik Koch.
Brandao (14-8) has gone 1-1 in his UFC career, falling to Darren Elkins via decision. Gambino (9-1) dropped his UFC debut to Steven Siler earlier this year.
