antonio-rodrigo-nogueira-16.jpgThe 13-bout lineup for June’s UFC on FUEL TV 10 event is now official, and tickets will go on sale Thursday.

Headlined by a heavyweight bout between opposing “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2? coaches Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (34-7-1 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and Fabricio Werdum (16-5-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) UFC on FUEL TV 10 takes place June 8 at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Brazil.

The card also features the final of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2,” which is currently airing in Brazil. Previously, only the top four fights had been confirmed by the promotion, but now all 13 bouts (the remaining nine of which were previously reported) are official.

“The UFC is very happy with this first event in the northeast of Brazil,” UFC Brazil rep Grace Tourinho stated. “We had a lot of success in the three southeastern states where we were, and we are very happy to bring this exciting event to other parts of the country, such as Fortaleza.

“The feedback we already have from fans and partners has us very excited about the reception we have in Ceara. There is no doubt that the Ginasio Paulo Sarasate will be completely packed and an incredible atmosphere.”

Tickets range from R$250 to R$1,200 (approximately $125 to $600 U.S.) and can be purchased from ticketsforfun.com.br beginning Thursday.

UFC on FUEL TV 10 features a six-fight main card that airs live in the U.S. on FUEL TV. The seven-bout prelim card streams on Facebook.
