The UFC 143: "St. Pierre vs. Diaz" fight card continues to take shape for the Feb. 4, 2012, pay-per-view scheduled for the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Undefeated Judo specialist Michael Kuiper has verbally agreed to make his UFC debut at UFC 143 against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion Rafael 'Sapo' Natal, UFC president Dana White announced today.
Kuiper has been perfect through 11 fights and has finished all but one of his victims by way of (T)KO or submission. Will he be ready for the big show in 2012?
Natal (13-3-1) has been consistently inconsistent, going 1-1-1 since his UFC debut back in September 2010. "Sapo" is also known for being a finisher, stopping ten opponents in 13 fights.
