Light HeavyweightGlover Texeira vs. Fabio Maldonado

Event Ultimate Fighting Championship
Date October 13, 2012
Venue HSBC Arena
City Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

UFC 153 is going to be held at the HSBC Arena, located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, event date is already set to October 13th, 2012. The Main card on UFC 153 will be the light heavyweight fight between Anderson Silva and Stephan Bonnar.

And here's another example of the endless injury plague of 2012, Vitor Belfort was expected to face Alan Belcher, however the first one was pulled out of the bout and now is expected to face Jones at UFC 152 due to Belcher's spinal fracture. Also, Glover Texeira was pulled out of the event claiming he was injured.

Anderson Silva is going as undisputed favorite into the bout, that in this case will have the exception of being a three round fight instead of the regular five rounds of main cards. The Middleweight Champion and currently holder of the longest winning and title defense streak is also the number one pund for pound fighter in the world, according to ESPN, Sherdog and other publications.

On the other side we have Stephan Bonnar, well known for never being knocked out or submitted in MMA competitions and loved by the audience for his brawling nature. Bonnar started his career at the age of 16 after winning his black belt title in taekwondo. Nowadays he trains BJJ under the lead of Master Sergio Pehna and more recent he started Muay Thai in Las Vegas at One Kick's Gym.

Even though UFC 153 is a non-title event, it is going to be an exciting bout you can't miss.
