A pair of Ultimate Fighter veterans – from two different seasons in two different countries – will square off at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Pettis, as Cezar Ferreira meets Clint Hester.
The bout was first reported late Thursday night by SporTV Globo out of Brazil. The card takes place August 3 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the HSBC Arena.
Ferreira (5-2) earned a decision victory over Sergio Moraes last year in his Octagon debut, earning the title of TUF: Brazil. He was expected to return to action this past month, but an injury knocked him out of a planned fight with C.B. Dollaway.
Hester (8-3) earned himself a second fight in the UFC after besting Bristol Marunde this past April. He has won four straight, including the knockout of Marunde.
