Daniel Sarafian had only one fight ahead of him to become the first Ultimate Fighter Brazil Middelweight winner but after suffering an arm injury he was pulled from the fight and onto the surgery table. Being out for several months he now looks to get back to action in December.

Here's an interview with Sarafian's Boxing coach Ivan de Oliveira.

"Daniel Sarafian is a very determined kid. He hates to be off practice and we started training some Jiu-Jitsu and even Boxing positions but we’re avoiding hitting him hard with the left hand. He can’t wait"

"Our plan is for him to come back in December, he will be ready to fight again then. It’s our expectation, but there’s nothing set with the UFC, so we’re just waiting. Early in September he will be released to train, then we just have to find him a fight and let him do what he loves mostly doing, which is fightin"

It seems to me as if the December 29th card (UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II) would be perfect for him. Assuming he does fight on that card who do you think would be a good match-up for his UFC debut?
