Bezerra accepted the offer immediately, according to the official release, while Ferreira stated he hopes to compete pending medical clearance. Proposed opponents for the pair were not announced. UFC 153 is expected to take place Oct. 13 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. The event will showcase former light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson, as “Rampage” locks horns with heavy-handed Brazilian Glover Teixeira.
Bezerra currently rides a six-fight winning streak, most recently outpointing fellow featherweight finalist Godofredo Castro at UFC 147 on June 23. Bezerra's victory over “Pepey” marked just the second time he has seen the judges' scorecards in his six years as a pro. Rony “Jason” owns seven of his 11 career wins by submission and has finished nine of his conquered foes inside the first round.
Ferreira, meanwhile, has accumulated seven pro outings to his credit since beginning his career more than four years ago. Now training in Las Vegas, the native Brazilian took a unanimous verdict over Sergio Moraes at UFC 147 to earn both the "TUF: Brazil" middleweight title and his fourth victory in his last five fights. The result marked the first decision win in the career of Cezar “Mutante,” who has defeated three of his five victims by way of knockout.view original article >>
