Vitor Belfort-Luke Rockhold Set For UFC On FX 8 In Brazil May 18

According to the Brazilian news source Tatame, middleweights Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold will square off on May 18 at UFC on FX 8. The bout was made official earlier this week, and now it appears to have a home.

The Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil will be the site for the event. It will mark the second card in the country this year.

Belfort (22-10) was also in the main event of the first one, which went down last month and saw “The Phenom” defeat Michael Bisping.

Rockhold (10-1) was the last man to hold the Strikeforce middleweight title. He dealt with injuries in 2012 and missed most of the latter half of the calendar year.
