Wisniewski-Guimares, Pepey-Sicilia added to UFC on FOX Sports 1 #3

USA TODAY Sports

Two more fights have been added to the UFC on FOX Sports 1 #3 fight card scheduled for Sept. 4, 2013 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The preliminary card for the third UFC on FOX Sports 1 event is beginning to take shape with the addition of a welterweight and featherweight contest.

Keith Wisniewski and Marcelo Guimares will hook ‘em up in an 170-pound affair while Godofredo Pepey and Sam Sicilia will go to battle in a 145-pound contest inside Jornalista Feilpe Drumond Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on Sept. 4, 2013.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) officials confirmed both match ups over the weekend.

Wisniewski (28-14-1) will be fortunate enough to get a third chance inside the Octagon after going 0-2 dating back to Oct. 2011. The 31-year-old has been sidelined since April 2012 and will finally hope to capture that elusive first UFC win.

Guimares (8-1-1) isn't in quite as bad of a spot as he is 1-1 under the UFC banner, although he did lose his last fight to Hyun Gyu Lim by second-round knockout.

Pepey (9-2) has already had plenty of ups and downs three fights into his UFC career. After failing to capture The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): Brazil crown against Rony Jason at UFC 147, Pepey split his next two fights and mot recent suffered a (technical) knockout loss at the hands of Felipe Arantes.

Sicilia (11-3) will enter the event on a career-worst two-fight losing streak. Despite earning a highlight reel knockout over Cristiano Marcello in his UFC debut, Sicilia will have his back against the wall as he cannot afford a third loss in a row.

UFC on FOX Sport 1 #3 will serve as a lead-in to the TUF season 18 debut and features a light heavyweight main event of Glover Teixeira vs. Ryan Bader.
