UFC 163 takes place Aug. 3 at HSBC Arena. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.
Although the bout order isn’t official, the fight card now features 13 fights.
A ticket pre-sale began Tuesday, and they’re on sale to the general public today. They range from R$145 to R$1,600 ($68 to $750).
The headliner sees top lightweight contender Pettis (16-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) drop a weight class as he hopes to keep Aldo (22-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) from claiming his 16th straight win and seventh consecutive WEC/UFC title defense. If victories, Aldo will move up to lightweight, and as MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently reported, he’s been promised an immediate title shot.
The event also has some firsts. In the co-headliner, Brazilian light heavyweight and former champ Lyoto Machida (19-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) fights for the UFC for the first time in his home country when he takes on fellow contender Phil Davis (11-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC). It’s a both with potential title implications.
