TUF Winner Michael Chiesa Returns To Action Vs. Rafaello Oliveira This December

Recent Ultimate Fighter winner Michael Chiesa will get back inside the Octagon this December when he takes on Rafaello Oliveira. The bout was announced by the UFC on Thursday for UFC on Fox 5.

UFC on Fox 5 is set for December 8 from Seattle’s KeyArena. The main event will feature Benson Henderson vs. Nate Diaz for Henderson’s UFC lightweight title.

Chiesa (8-0) earned the title of Ultimate Fighter earlier this year when he defeated Al Iaquinta. The season was the first to hold live fights each week, though the format has since been changed back to the previous ways of taped fights.

Oliveira (15-5) holds a 2-4 record in a pair of stints with the UFC. The bout is likely set to be part of the prelim portion of the evening.
