Although the curtain will be drawn on the Octagon’s debut on Fox Sports 1 in just two days, that didn’t stop the UFC from completing the 12-bout roster for their third show on the new network.
“UFC Fight Night: Teixeira vs. Bader” takes place September 4 inside Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
A light heavyweight affair between Ryan Bader (pictured) and Glover Teixeira headlines the freebie fight card. A pivotal middleweight scrap with Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Yushin Okami serves as the co-main event.
