UFC 153 Fight Card Shaping Up

via cdn1.sbnation.com

UFC 153 will be taking place on October 13th in the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the card is starting to take shape. The main event and co-main event are set, as Jose Aldo will defend his UFC featherweight title against Erik Koch, while Quinton Jackson will face off with Glover Teixeira. Aldo and Koch were supposed to meet at UFC 149, but the bout was postponed due to an Aldo injury.

The card also features a wealth of talent from The Ultimate Fighter Brazil. Both TUF winners will fight on the show, though neither has an opponent as of right now. It is widely believed that Cezar Ferreira will meet Daniel Sarafian, who made the TUF Brazil finals but was forced out with an injury. Tatame confirmed the Mores/Forte fight just a few hours ago.

Here's a look at the current card:
