In his last fight, the 27-year-old Sao Paolo native stopped Christos Giagos with a one-round submission. The victory broke Moises’ two-game losing skid and brought him back to the winning column.

He is also capable of outclassing his foes, with six decision victories on his resume.

Melquizael Costa

Costa (19-5) makes his debut in the UFC after a successful stint in the independent circuit where he has won 19 of his 24 bouts.
