He will now will be on hostile territory as he faces Thiago Santos in at The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil Season Four Finale, in Sao Paulo on June 27, as it was reported by Lancenet.

Bosse, who was a retired fighter MMA fighter with a 10-1 record, will make his UFC debut at 185 pounds after a two-year lay-off, even though he is on an eight-fight win streak. He has wins over notable veterans of the sport such as Wes Sims, Marvin Eastman and Houston Alexander.

Santos, a contestant on the second season of the Brazilian reality show, has been alternating wins and losses ever since his UFC debut. As of now, Marreta is coming off of a vicious body kick TKO win over Andy Enz at UFC 183.
