UFC 147 | Milton Vieira vs. Felipe Arantes Booked
UFC officials have booked a featherweight bout between UFC newcomer Milton Vieira and Felipe Arantes.
The bout is scheduled for UFC 147.
UFC 147, though not officially announced by the promotion is expected to go down from the Joao Havelange Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on June 23. In the headlining bout Anderson Silva will attempt to defend his title in a rematch against Chael Sonnen.
Vieira is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu stand-out who is credited by many as the creator of the “Anaconda Choke.” He brings a three-fight win streak into his UFC debut.
Arantes will look to spoil the debut of Vieira when the two face each other. This two-fight UFC veteran was able to bounce back from his fist Octagon defeat when he defeated Antonio Carvalho via unanimous decision at UFC 142.
