Pereria will look to continue his excellent run of form which has seen the 28 year old amass a four fight win streak. During this run, the Brazilian has taken out some of the best welterweights outside the top 15 that the UFC has to offer such as Khaos Williams and Niko price.

Ponzinibbio on the other hand will hope to pick up some of the form he had before is first run in the UFC where he would go 9-1. This however was before the 35 year old would suffer an almost career ending blood and bone injection which forced him out of action for over two years.
