Michael Chiesa vs. Rafaello Oliveira Added To UFC on FOX 5Yet another bout has been added to the already stacked UFC on FOX 5, as TUF winner Michael Chiesa will grapple with Raffaelo Oliveira when the UFC hits the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, on December 8th, 2012.
24 year old Michael "Maverick" Chiesa (8-0) was the cinderella story of season 15 of The Ultimate Fighter, winning the show despite having to deal with the death of his father. Chiesa managed to fight to the end, and eventually defeated Al Laquinta to earn the contract. Chiesa remains undefeated in his career and will look to keep things that way come December 8th.
30 year old Rafaello "Tractor" Oliveira (15-5) is currently in his second spell with the UFC after a previous stint with the promotion back in 2009/2010. Currently the Brazilian's second spell is similar to the first, as he sits 1-2 in his last three fights, being knocked out by Yves Edwards, choked out by Gleison Tibau, and then picking up a much needed win by earning a decision over Yoislandy Izquierdo at UFC 148.
UFC on FOX 5 will be headlined by a UFC lightweight title fight between Benson Henderson and Nate DIaz.
