Vinny Magalhaes sent out a message on Twitter recently that stated he had signed his bout sheet for his next UFC appearance. Now, SporTV Globo is reporting that Magalhaes will face Anthony Perosh in August at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Pettis.
The card takes place August 3 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo defending his belt against Anthony Pettis in the main event.
Magalhaes (10-6) and Perosh (13-7) have become interview “rivals” as of late, though, not to the extent of Magalhaes and Phil Davis.
The former Ultimate Fighter runner-up was defeated by Davis earlier this year, while Perosh has been on the sidelines since suffering a devastating toe injury in training.
