UFC confirms Aldo-Pettis, Koscheck-Maia for UFC 163 in Brazil

UFC officials confirmed a pair of rumored bouts for the August show in Brazil, as Jose Aldo will defend his UFC featherweight title against Anthony Pettis.

Also, Josh Koshcheck will come back and fight in the welterweight division when he faces Demian Maia. The card takes place August 3 from Rio de Janerio, Brazil.

Aldo accepted the fight with Pettis after he asked to move down from 155 pounds and face the long-time champion.

The card will mark the fourth event in Brazil in 2013, as the promotion recently held UFC on FX 8 this past weekend. .
