A middleweight bout between Derek Brunson (10-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Ronny Markes (14-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) is the latest fight targeted for June’s UFC on FUEL TV 10 event.
Tatame first brought word of the matchup, though UFC officials haven’t made a formal announcement.
UFC on FUEL TV 10 takes place June 8 at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. The event’s main card airs on FUEL TV following prelims on Facebook.
It’s not clear where Brunson vs. Markes will be placed on the lineup.
Brunson recently made his UFC debut and ended a two-fight skid with a unanimous-decision victory over Chris Leben at UFC 155. The former Strikeforce fighter and three-time NCAA Division II All-American wrestler opened his career with a 9-0 mark before losses to Kendall Grove and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
Markes, who fights in his home country, looks to extend his current win streak to seven fights, which has included UFC wins over Karlos Vemola, Aaron Simpson and Andrew Craig. All of the Nova Uniao fighter’s UFC wins have come via decision, though nine of his 11 other victories have come via stoppage.
The latest UFC on FUEL TV 10 lineup now includes:
