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.

UFC officials have confirmed the bout’s addition. The card is scheduled for Rio de Janeiro and featherweight champion Jose Aldo facing Anthony Pettis in the main event.

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.
