Cezar Ferreira vs. Clint Hester To Fight At UFC 163 On August 3rd In Rio de Janeiro , Brazil

A middleweight face off putting “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” winner, Cezar Ferreira head to head with TUF 17 heavy hitter, Clint Hester was announced today for the UFC 163 event set for August 3rd in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Brazilian news outlet SporTV Globo were the first to report the news of the match up; however, UFC officials have not yet confirmed the fight.

Ferreira defeated Sergio Moraes at UFC 147 last July to clinch the reality show title but has not competed since after picking up a series of injuries. Hester had a disappointing run on TUF 17 despite showing ample amounts of talent. He competed on the season’s finale show in Las Vegas and went some way to securing redemption with a third round knockout of Bristol Marunde with an elbow.
