Ferreira took Smith on last June, and after executing a beautiful throw, he tapped the latter out. The Brazilian needed just 38 seconds to record the victory. Now that’s how you win a fight efficiently.
Since then, Ferreira has recorded a stoppage win over Ramsey Nijem, and most recently he was decisioned by Beneil Dariush. It will be interesting to see how he does against Poirier, who was a top featherweight contender for sometime, and has elected to come up to 155. A win for Ferreira would certainly turn more heads his way.
UFC FN 63 will be hosted by the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.
