Following tonight’s season finale of TUF Brazil, in which Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira defeated Thiago “Bodao” de Oliveira Perpetuo in a violent fashion, the UFC 147 fight card has filled out as the finals for both the middleweight and featherweight tournaments are set.
To go along with the previously announced main card bouts between headliners Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin, Mike Russow and Fabricio Werdum, and Yuri Alcantara and Hacran Dias, officials have confirmed the featherweight final bout with Rony “Jason” Mariano Bezerra taking on Godofredo “Pepey” de Oliveira. The middleweight final was also announced, as Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira is set to face off against Sergio “Serginho” Moraes. Moraes steps in as a replacement for Daniel Sarafian, who defeated him in the semifinals, but was forced to withdraw due to injury.
The preliminary card has also filled out, as UFC officials announced a card full of TUF Brazil cast members, fighting for their shot inside the octagon.
