Middleweight strikers Cezar Ferreira and Clint Hester have been matched for a meeting on August 3 at UFC 163. Both men surfaced as solid prospects as members of the Ultimate Fighter with Ferreira actually going on to win his bracket on TUF Brasil.
The 5-2 “Mutante” picked up a decision win over Sergio Moraes a little less than a year ago to win the Ultimate Fighter Brasil crown but hasn’t fought since due to injury issues.
Hester was a member of TUF 17 and knocked out Bristol Marunde in April at the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale. The 8-3 boxer owns six stoppages by way of knockout and is on a four-fight winning streak.
