Fresh off UFC win, Sergio Moraes meets Leandro Lo at Copa Podio

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Moments after Sergio Moraes picked his third UFC win on Saturday, Copa Podio announced the three-time jiu-jitsu world champion on its next card.

Moraes, who won his third straight fight in the UFC with a unanimous decision over Mickael Lebout at UFC Fight Night 64 in Krakow, Poland, will face Leandro Lo in a 10-minute jiu-jitsu match at the Copa Podio event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on May 9.

Lo competed against UFC lightweight Gilbert Burns at the last edition of Copa Podio in November, and tapped "Durinho" with a cross collar choke.

The upcoming Copa Podio event airs live and free on its official website, and features 10-minute no-gi battles between Bellator’s Goiti Yamauchi vs. Milton Vieira and Gregor Gracie vs. Daniel Moraes.

Copa Podio will also crown its heavyweight champion with an eight-man heavyweight tournament, featuring UFC veteran Vinny Magalhaes, Felipe Preguica, Luiz Panza, Tim Spriggs, Erberth Santos, Maks Wisnieviski, Nelton Pontes, and Victor Honorio.
