Two "Ultimate Fighter Brazil" champions will return to the Octagon in March.
Rony Jason, who defeated Godofredo Pepey back in 2012 to win the first season of TUF: Brazil, joins fellow TUF: Brazil champion Cezar Ferreira at the yet-to-be-announced UFC Fight Night event in Natal, Brazil, on March 23, as he takes on TUF 14 alum Steven Siler. Siler announced the fight on Monday.
Jason (13-4) finished Sam Sicilia and Mike Wilkinson after winning the first season of TUF: Brazil, but he failed to extend his winning streak to nine after suffering a 40-second knockout loss to Jeremy Stephens last November in Goiania, Brazil.
Siler (23-11) also looks to return to the win column following a decision loss to Dennis Bermudez at UFC Fight for the Troops 3 last November. Prior to the loss, "Super" Siler was 5-1 inside the Octagon with notable wins over Mike Brown and Cole Miller.
