UFC Confirms Aldo-Pettis, Koscheck-Maia For UFC 163 In Brazil

UFC officials confirmed a pair of previously reported bouts for the August show in Brazil, as Jose Aldo will defend his UFC featherweight title against Anthony Pettis.

Also, Josh Koscheck will try to get back on track in the welterweight division when he faces Demian Maia. The card takes place August 3 from Rio de Janerio, Brazil and will serve as UFC 163.

Aldo accepted the fight with Pettis after “Showtime” asked to move down from 155 pounds and face the long-time champion.

The card will mark the fourth UFC event in Brazil in 2013, as the promotion recently held UFC on FX 8 with a headliner fight between Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold.

Do you think Pettis can stop the run of Aldo, or will the ex-WEC champ just become another victim of “Scarface?”
