Diego Brandao Says He's Fighting Joey Gambino At UFC 153

It appears that The Ultimate Fighter 14 winner Diego Brandao will be making his return to the octagon in his home country of Brazil at UFC 153 on October 13th. And he'll be fighting a guy that's looking to get back into the win column just like him. Brandao announced the matchup via twitter earlier today:

Brandao (14-8) looked very good on TUF 14 but was stuck with a tough challenge in his first fight against Darren Elkins after claiming the crown. He dropped a decision to Elkins at UFC 146 and will be looking to rebound from that. Gambino (9-1) made his UFC debut as a late replacement against Steven Siler at UFC on FX 4 last month, but was submitted in the first round.

The bout will take place on the preliminary card, barring 76 injures that could move it to the main event.
