Third UFC Fox Sports 1: Teixeira vs. Bader

Third UFC Fox Sports 1: Teixeira vs. Bader

The fresh Fox Sports 1 network will be broadcasting its third UFC event on September 4th in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The main event will be a light heavyweight contest between contender Glover Teixeira and The Ultimate Fighter winner, Ryan “Darth” Bader, which was originally supposed to happen at UFC 160. Under them will be Yushin Okami against Ronaldo Souza, who formerly held the Strikeforce Middleweight Championship. Here is what the current card is looking like:

Ryan Bader vs. Glover Teixeira

Yushin Okami vs. Ronaldo Souza

Joseph Benavidez vs. Jussier Formiga

Sean Spencer vs. Yuri Villefort

Ali Bagautinov vs. Marcos Vinicius

Godofredo Pepey vs. Sam Sicilia

Johnny Bedford vs. Hugo Viana

Rafael Natal vs. Tor Troeng

Marcelo Guimaraes vs. Keith Wisniewski

Ramiro Hernandez vs. Lucas Martins

Both of the light heavyweight contenders involved in the main event are vying for more high profile opponents like Dan Henderson or Rashad Evans, as after beating them they may prove themselves worthy of a chance at the title. Neither of them have quite earned a shot at Jon Jones, but the winner of this contest will be well on their way.
