Joao Zeferino made his UFC debut on short notice against Rafael Natal at UFC on FX 8, fighting well, but ultimately lost a unanimous decision. The loss to Natal snapped a seven-fight win streak dating back to November of 2011. Zeferino will drop to welterweight for his sophomore appearance with the promotion.

Elias Silverio makes his UFC debut with a perfect 8-0 record to begin his mixed martial arts career. He’s been a staple of Brazil’s top regional promotion, going 4-0 under the Jungle Fights banner with three victories coming by way of stoppages. Silverio made his stateside debut in January of this year, earning a split decision victory over Pat DeFranco at a Ring of Combat event.
