Middleweights get top billing at Saturday's UFC on FX 7 event from Sao Paulo, Brazil, as hometown debutante Daniel Sarafian draws C.B. Dollaway in the co-main role, while Vitor Belfort vs. Michael Bisping stands atop the lineup as the featured hurrah. The 4-fight FX main card begins at 9:00 p.m. ET on the heels of a 6-piece preliminary offering on Fuel TV at 6:00 p.m. ET, with a lone bout on Facebook kicking off the evening's face-punching festivities.
This match up in particular has really drawn my interest, mostly because the general consensus from the fan-base and the betting lines point strongly toward Brazilian newcomer Daniel Sarafian (7-2). Look -- I'm an honest guy and an open book, so I have no problem revealing that I wasn't able to catch most of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): Brazil, which served as Sarafian's launchpad to the Octagon. But, now, having finally taken in his performances on the show, I'm starting to understand the appeal.
