Team Alpha Male fighter Danny Castillo will meet nasty Brazilian striker Edson Barboza. The UFC recently tweeted confirmation of the fight:
Castillo (16-5) has been doing very well of late, picking up wins in each of his last two bouts and five of six overall. The last was a unanimous decision victory over Tim Means at UFC on Fox 8 in July.
