The return of a heavyweight contender, a Brazilian turf war, and two crossroads battles in the 155-pound weight class highlight the final four bouts signed, sealed, and delivered for October 25th’s UFC 90 event at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

In heavyweight action to be aired on UFC 90’s pay-per-view telecast, Fabricio Werdum will look to keep the momentum going from his back-to-back TKO wins over Gabriel Gonzaga and Brandon Vera when he battles Octagon newcomer Junior “Cigano” dos Santos, winner of six out of seven pro bouts who has never let one of his victims out of the first round.

Before the main card begins, fans at the Allstate Arena will be treated to three outstanding lightweight preliminary bouts, headed up by the clash between Marcus Aurelio and Hermes Franca. Not only do both standouts hail from the same city in Brazil – Fortaleza – but they are former teammates now doing battle in the Octagon in order to keep their title dreams alive.

Two of the division’s top young talents will also be in action, taking on veteran contenders looking to halt their rise up the ranks. Unbeaten Gray “The Bully” Maynard squares off against streaking Rich “No Love” Clementi (winner of six in a row) in one matchup, and the other pivotal bout sees Shannon Gugerty taking on Spencer “The King” Fisher.

Tickets for UFC 90, which features the UFC middleweight title bout between champion Anderson Silva and challenger Patrick Cote, as well as a welterweight battle between Thiago Alves and Diego Sanchez, are on sale now.
