After one of the most memorable runs in Ultimate Fighter history, TUF 15 stand-out Michael Chiesa will look to follow up his season-winning success this December when he faces Rafaello Oliveira. Oliveira should prove to be a stiff test for Chiesa as a more experienced competitor both in terms of Octagon action and overall outings.
Chiesa earned a ton of fans on TUF 15 with his heart, overcoming the death of his father during taping to emerge as the last man standing. The “Maverick” holds an overall record of 8-0 including six wins by way of submission.
Oliveira is 15-5 in his career and is also coming off a win. He has finished eight of the opponents he’s beaten with victories over John Gunderson and Yoislandy Izquierdo under the UFC banner.
