The UFC has added a bout between welterweights Mike Pierce and Carlos Eduardo Rocha to the UFC on FX 3 lineup. The card is expected to take place on June 8, though no location or venue have been announced.
Pierce, who holds an overall record of 13-5, is 5-3 during his UFC career including a February loss to Josh Koscheck. After coming up barely short on the scorecards Pierce went on the attack through Twitter against Brazilians while pushing for one as his next opponent.
In Rocha, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt that is 9-1 in his career, Pierce will be getting his wish. He has gone 1-1 in his UFC career, defeating Kris McCray before losing a Split Decision to Jake Ellenberger.
MMAJunkie was able to confirm the bout’s destination after Rocha mentioned the match-up on his Facebook account.
