UFC 163 To Receive Neil Magny-Sergio Moraes

A pair of welterweights are set to square off at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Pettis this August, as Globo is reporting Neil Magny will face Sergio Moraes.

The card takes place August 3 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo defends his title against Anthony Pettis in the main event.

Magny (8-1) scored a victory over Jon Manley earlier this year in his official Octagon debut. He was part of The Ultimate Fighter 16, advancing to the semifinals.

Moraes (7-2) has gone 1-1 in his UFC career, competing on TUF: Brazil. He was tabbed as a replacement to compete in the finals after falling in the semis.
