A location has not yet been determined for the Versus-televised event.
Brown (22-4), a winner of 10-straight bouts who trains out of American Top Team, topped Jeff Curran in his WEC debut last June before defeating Urijah Faber to win the title in November. He’s successfully defended the belt twice since, defeating Leonard Garcia via first-round submission in March and again defeating Faber by unanimous decision in a June rematch.
Aldo (15-1) has recorded knockouts in all five of his WEC bouts, defeating Alexandre Franca Nogueira, Jonathan Brookins, Ronaldo Perez, Chris Mickle, and, most-recently in June, Cub Swanson since debuting with the promotion last June to earn a shot at the featherweight title. His lone career loss was a second-round submission defeat in 2005 that has been followed by 8-straight wins.
