Rafael Natal vs. Tor Troeng added to UFC on FS 1 3 in Brazil

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

The most recent addition to Brazil's first UFC on Fox Sports card comes in the middleweight division with Rafael Natal meeting Tor Troeng.

Rafael Natal will look for his third straight victory when he meets TUF 17's Tor Troeng at UFC on Fox Sports 1 3 in Brazil on September 4th. The middleweight bout was recently confirmed by UFC officials, and will probably take place on the preliminary card of the event.

Natal (16-4-1) is 4-2-1 in the UFC, and is coming off a back-and-forth decision win over late replacement Joao Zeferino at UFC on FX 8 in May. He had been expected to face Chris Camozzi at that event, but Camozzi got bumped up to the co-main event after Costa Philippou got hurt, and Zeferino stepped in.

Troeng (16-4) was a highly-touted contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 17, but was eliminated early by Josh Samman. He made his official UFC debut before the show was even finished airing, taking out Adam Cella by first-round submission at UFC on Fuel TV 9 in his home country of Sweden in April.

The main event of UFC on FS 1 3 sees Glover Teixeira taking on Ryan Bader in an important light heavyweight fight. The likely co-main sees ranked middleweights facing off as Yushin Okami meets Ronaldo Souza.
