Report: Antonio Carlos Jr vs. Brad Tavares added to UFC Brasilia

A middleweight bout between The Ultimate Fighter veterans has reportedly been added to the upcoming UFC Brasilia card, in March. Per Combate’s Raphael Marinho, Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Antonio Carlos Junior will take on Brad Tavares in Brazil’s capital of Brasilia.

The heavyweight champion of TUF Brazil 3, Antonio Carlos Junior (10-4-1 NC) will look to snap a two-fight losing skid—having dropped decisions to Ian Heinisch and, back in September, Uriah Hall. The 29-year-old’s last win came in April 2018, when ‘Cara de Sapato’ tapped out Tim Boetsch via rear-naked choke.

TUF 11 vet Brad Tavares will also look to end his own bad run of performances.
