The first official fight has been added to the UFC 153 card in Brazil. Officials from the promotion reported earlier today that former light-heavyweight champion Rampage Jackson will be taking on UFC newcomer Glover Teixeira.
The event is expected to take place on October 13th at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
As the event currently has no headlining or co-headlining bout, Jackson vs. Teixeira is thought to be filling one of these spots.
This past month, president Dana White had mentioned that he would like for Teixeira to take on another former champ in Shogun Rua, but Rua refused due to the fact that Glover is still new in the world of UFC.
No other bouts have been announced for the card as of yet, but keep checking back for more news on UFC 153.
