A battle of TUF semifinalists has been announced for UFC 163 as The Ultimate Fighter 16’s Neil Magny takes on TUF: Brazil’s Sergio Moraes. The pairing was first announced by Brazil’s Globo news site.
Magny bounced back from his loss to teammate Mike Ricci by dominating fellow cast mate Jon Manley at UFC 157. His opponent, Moraes, has been sidelined by a torn ACL suffered when he gained his first UFC victory at UFC 153.
The bout will likely end up on the evening’s preliminary card.
UFC 163 takes place August 3 at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. A UFC featherweight title fight between champion José Aldo and Anthony Pettis will headline the August fight card. More bouts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
