UFC 163: Vinny Magalhaes, Anthony Perosh To Tangle

A pair of light heavyweights will face off in August at UFC 163, as Vinny Magalhaes and Anthony Perosh are reported official for the event.

SporTV Globo in Brazil first confirmed news of the fight for the August 3 pay-per-view card from Rio de Janeiro. UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will defend his title against Anthony Pettis in the main event.

Magalhaes (10-6) will be looking to rebound from a recent loss to Phil Davis. Previously, he and Perosh (13-7) exchanged words via Twitter and interviews, and it appears the UFC took note.

Perosh is returning from a gruesome toe injury – much the same as the one Jon Jones suffered – that kept him on the sidelines for several months.
