Derek Brunson vs. Ronny Markes set for UFC on Fuel 10

USA TODAY Sports

Middleweights Ronny Markes and Derek Brunson are set to fight on June 8th at UFC on Fuel TV 10 in Brazil.

A pair of middleweights have been added to the UFC on Fuel TV 10 card in Brazil. Tatame reports that Brazil's Ronny Markes will face off against ex-Strikeforce fighter Derek Brunson on June 8th in Fortaleza. The event is also the season finale of TUF Brazil 2.

Markes (14-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) has won all of his UFC fights by decision, including his last one against Andrew Craig in January. He possesses a grinding wrestling style and has used his strength and size to outmuscle the likes of Craig, Aaron Simpson, and Karlos Vemola.

Brunson (10-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) replaced Vemola at UFC 155 to face Chris Leben, and was able to use his wrestling abilities to earn an ugly but effective decision win over the hard-hitting Leben. He went 3-1 in Strikeforce, with that lone defeat coming via KO against Ronaldo Souza.

It is unknown whether or not this will be on the Fuel TV main card or Facebook preliminary card.
