At UFC 147 we got to see The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil finale’s which resulted in Rony “Jason’ Bezerra winning in the featherweight category and Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira taking the middleweight crown. By winning the tournaments both men have earned themselves a six figure contract with the UFC.
Both fights took place on the UFC 147 main card at the Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
Rony “Jason” Bezerra took on Godofredo “Pepey” de Oliveira and won via decision to become the first ever winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil. The fight began with the two men going toe-to-toe with their striking. Oliveira managed to pull guard and attempt a kimura submission but Bezerra was able to get himself free. As the fight went on we saw Pepey repeatedly try to pull guard without success, and also administer a couple of accidental low blows to Rony which nearly resulted in a point being deducted. Bezerra managed to land more significant strikes during the bout in which the judges ruled in his favor.
Here is an interview with Rony “Jason” Bezerra after the fight:
Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira faced Sergio “Serginho” Moraes in the middleweight finale and won via decision. This fight began with an exciting exchange of punches and kicks from both men in the first round. The second round was where Ferreira was able to make an impression with some effective striking, however, towards the end of the round Moraes landed a hard elbow which he followed up with a barrage of punches keeping himself in the fight. The third and final round was very close with both men landing significant strikes, but in the end Mutante seemed to have more control resulting in a unanimous decision victory.
