Set for October 13 in Rio de Janeiro, UFC 153 is bulking up with stars. And as one would expect, the card has its fair share of Brazilians on it.
Not having stepped in the octagon since August of last year, when he lost to Stanislav Nedkov at UFC 134, Luiz Banha will finally see action again when he squares off with the USA’s Chris Camozzi.
Further Brazilians whose opponents have now been confirmed are: Erick Silva, facing Jon Fitch; Demian Maia, taking on Rick Story; and Diego Brandão, who will toe the line with Joey Gambino.
