UFC 153 Fight Card: Aldo Vs. Koch

The UFC has really made a concerted effort to hold cards in Brazil, and October 13th is no different. Their 3rd trip to South America's largest country for 2012 features a title fight between Brazilian and UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo and 24-year-old American Erik Koch. Of course, the original main card lineup has already changed due to both the injury of Alan Belcher and Vitor Belfort's move to UFC 152 to fight Jon Jones. This card is still very solid from top to bottom and on Friday gained Phil Davis vs. Wagner Prado to replace Belcher vs. Belfort. Quinton Jackson vs. Glover Teixeira is now the new co-main event. To give you an idea of how deep this event is, there are 3 former title challengers (Fitch, Maia, and Gabriel Gonzaga), 2 TUF winners (Jason and Brandao), and a former UFC champion (Rampage).
