Ronny Markes made his UFC debut beating Karlos Vermola by unanimous decision last August. Whereas that time Markes fought at light heavyweight, this time he will be doing battle at middleweight, when he takes on the tough Aaron Simpson on February 15 in Omaha, Nebraska, USA, at UFC on Fuel TV 1. While the Jair Lourenço black belt and Nova União rep Markes carries a five-fight win streak into the match, Simpson has won his last three.

Jiu-Jitsu will also be on display in other fights on the night. In the main event, Diego Sanchez takes on Jake Ellenberger. Another black belt to take to the cage at the event is Rani Yahya, who lost to Chad Mendes at UFC 133, who will test his mettle against TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins. Check out the card as it stands:
