The Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) third FOX Sports 1 fight card, UFC Fight Night 28, is quickly to filling up with the addition of a welterweight affair between Kenny Robertson and Joao Zeferino.
Both men are coming off decision losses in their last trip to the Octagon and will look to rebound with a victory when they clash inside Jornalista Feilpe Drumond Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on Sept. 4, 2013.
UFC officials recently confirmed the 170-pound match up.
Robertson (12-3) has been rather inconsistent since returning to the UFC in July 2012, going a subpar 1-2 with decision losses to Aaron Simpson and Sean Pierson. The 29-year-old is 1-3 with the organization overall over two separate stints.
Zeferino (13-5) will get a second chance to score his first UFC victory after dropping a rather unimpressive decision to longtime veteran of the organization Rafael Natal. His fight with Natal took place at middleweight; however, for this fight the 27-year-old has opted to drop a weight class to welterweight.
"The Brazilian Samurai" has earned nine of his 13 professional victories by way of submission.
