The UFC has added a welterweight bout to the UFC on FOX Sports 1 3 lineup. The bout was announced over the weekend by UFC officials, and seemed to indicate a possible name change for the FOX Sports 1 fight cards by referring to the event as the UFC Fight Night. No changes have been officially announced, but it now seems likely.
Both Wisniewski and Guimares come into the fight in need of a victory following losses in their previous outings. Wisniewski has been out of action since dropping a close fight to Chris Clements at UFC 145, the decision kept the Indiana-native from obtaining his first UFC victory in three previous tries. Guimares heads into the bout fresh off his first career loss to Hyun Gyu Lim at UFC on FUEL TV 8.
UFC on FOX Sports 1 3 takes place September 4 in Belo Horizante, Brazil. A light heavyweight pairing between Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader will headline the card. Co-headlining the bill will be a middleweight bout between Yushin Okami and Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza. The card will take place at the Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond.
