Hester Out Santos In vs. Ferreira at UFC 163


TUF Brazil season 1 winner Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira (5-2) will have his first official UFC bout at UFC 163, but not against this previously announced opponent Clint Hester (8-3) who has been sidelined by injury and has been replaced by Thiago “Marreta” Santos (8-1).

Ferreira last fought in June of 2013, when he defeated Sergio Moraes by unanimous decision; to become the TUF Brazil season 1 winner. “Mutante” has 3 of 4 stoppage wins by KO/TKO.

Santos who was a cast member of TUF Brazil, last fought bouncing back from his first career loss to score a 1 st round TKO win over Denis Silva. “Marreta” has 4 of his 5 stoppage wins by KO/TKO. Taking this Middleweight bout on late notice, I thought we should note that Santos normally fights at Welterweight.

UFC 163 takes place on August 3, at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil; and is healined by Jung Sung Jung challenging Jose Aldo for the UFC Featherweight title.
