UFC on FUEL TV 10 will see Strikeforce veteran Anthony Smith will meet fellow UFC newcomer Antonio Braga Neto this June. The middleweights will likely meet on the card’s Facebook Preliminaries. Graciemag.com first reported the prospective matchup.
Smith will look to get back on track after a January loss to Roger Gracie at Strikeforce: Marquart vs. Saffiedine. Smith had won nine of his last ten fights prior to his loss to Gracie. The road will not get easier for Smith with faces off against Neto. The highly regarded Brazilian prospect is an elite grappler and currently riding a three-fight win streak into his UFC debut.
UFC on FUEL TV 10 will take place June 8 in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil at the Ginasio Paulo Sarasate. The card will serve as the finale for The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2. TUF: Brazil 2, coaches Fabrico Werdum and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will headline the June card.
