Sergio Moraes has opponent set for Taura MMA debut

Sergio Moraes is set to compete for the first time since leaving UFC. ‘The Panther’ will face fellow promotion newcomer Jared Revel on October 30 at Taura 10, in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). The fight card also includes Rousimar Palhares vs Sean Loeffler and four title bouts.

The 38-year-old was the runner-up in the first ‘The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil’ and has compiled a 14-5-1 record as a professional MMA fighter. His career has also included a stint in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, in which he defeated the likes of Neil Magny, Tim Means and Ben Saunders. At Taura he will fight as a middleweight.

Revel (10-2) distinguished himself in Canadian regional circuit, with nine wins and the middleweight title at Battlefield Fight League. ‘The Rebel’, a BJJ black belt who always seeks the mount position, will face a tough challenge against Moraes, a three-time IBJJF world champion.

In the co-main event, bantamweight champion Douglas ‘He Man’ (12-1) puts his title on the line versus BJJ ace Ary Farias (9-2). Also, Yasmin Castanho (4-0) will defend her strawweight crown against Bruna Vargas (4-3). Finally, the featherweight throne will be at stake for champ Isaac Moura (10-4) and Gian Sarturi (8-2).
