A middleweight bout has been added to the UFC 190 fight card on August 1 in Brazil as Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 finalist Vitor Miranda will meet Clint Hester on the preliminary card.
Hester confirmed the fight booking on social media after it was reported by MMA Fighting earlier today.
UFC 190 will come from the HSBC Arena on August 1st and will be headlined by Ronda Rousey defending the UFC women’s bantamweight title against Bethe Correia.
Miranda (10-4) dropped down to the middleweight division late last year after being a finalist in The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 heavyweight tournament. In his UFC middleweight debut, he defeated Jake Collier by TKO and he has won five of his last six fights. Hester (11-4) is also an alum of The Ultimate Fighter and he opened his UFC career with four straight wins. His winning streak was snapped last year when he lost to Robert Whittaker by TKO.
