The UFC 147 main card has been set after the TUF Brazil finalists were confirmed over the weekend.

Headlined by Wanderlei Silva's rematch with Rich Franklin, the Belo Horizonte card will crown two new Ultimate Fighters in the middleweight and featherweight classes.

Cesar 'Mutante' Ferreira will face Sergio 'Serginho' Moraes in the final of the 185 category, following a fantastic head kick knockout in the semis. Moraes has been called upon after initial finalist, Daniel Sarafian, was ruled out by injury.

The other final will see Godofredo 'Pepey' de Oliveira and Rony 'Jason' Mariano Bezerra go toe-to-toe in the 145lb division. Pepey de Oliveira represents Team Belfort while Bezerra was the top pick of Team Silva.
