“TUF: Live” champion Mike Chiesa will take on Rafaello Oliveira in his first bout. The bout will take place on the undercard of the December 8 bill. The bout was announced by UFC officials on Thursday.

Chiesa won the TUF title by defeating Al Iaquinta at the “TUF: Live Finale” back in June. The Spokane resident will look to keep his perfect record intact against the veteran Oliveira.

Oliveira will likely be fighting for his UFC career after another 1-2 run in his second stint in the Octagon. Oliveira defeated Yoislandy Izquierdo at UFC 148 to snap a two-fight losing streak.

“UFC on Fox 5″ will take place December 8 live from the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. The four-fight main card will be headlined by a UFC lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz.
