It appears that if the UFC has their way, fans will finally get to see the real long-awaited middleweight final of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 1. The bout will likely take place at UFC Fight Night 32 in Brazil in November. MMA Fighting's Guilherme Cruz has the news (via UOL):
According to a report from UOL, and , who were expected to meet in the TUF: Brazil 1 finale, are in talks to fight at on Nov. 9 in Goiania, Brazil.
Sources close to the situation told MMAFighting.com that’s the fight UFC wants, although no contracts were sent yet.
Mutante (6-2) won the original Ultimate Fighter Brazil, but he ended up facing Sergio Moraes in the final at UFC 147 instead of Sarafian (8-3) due to an injury. Mutante is coming off a quick submission win over Thiago Santos while Sarafian picked up a win over Eddie Mendez via submission in his last bout.
The bout has been something I've personally been looking forward to for a long time, and hopefully the two men sign on the dotted line and we can see who the real winner is. I'd fully expect this bout to the be the co-main event of the November 9th show if it comes to fruition. The headliner sees Vitor Belfort rematching Dan Henderson.
