    SIR

    Recovered from a knee injury, the CM System fighter is scheduled to perform at Arena da Barra in Rio de Janeiro in search of the fifth consecutive victory in the organization

    Elizeu Capoeira is another member of Brazil scaled to UFC Rio 9, May 12 at Arena da Barra. The Paranaense will face Sean Strickland, in a duel valid for welterweight, he said, according to the report of Combate.com, on Friday, with sources close to the organization.

    After four straight wins for UFC, Capoeira was scheduled to perform at UFC London, last Saturday, but a knee injury knocked him out of action. The 31-year-old defeated Max Griffin at UFC Sao Paulo in October in his latest performance, and was crowned with the "Fight of the Night" bonus.

    Sean Strickland (6 wins and 2 losses in UFC) will perform in Brazil for the second time. The athlete, who lost to Santiago Ponzinibbio in 2015 at UFC Porto Alegre, has won out of his last five fights. In his last performance, "Tarzan" overcame Court McGee in points in November.

    I really enjoy watching Zaleski, he's fast becoming a dark horse favourite of mine. Don't see him ever being a contender, but he's steadily working up the ranks. Strickland makes everyone look like shit, though. Don't think he's ever had an exciting fight in the UFC.

    This will be his comeuppance though. He's usualy the superior athlete, but he won't be here for me and he isn't as strong as Lyman Good, so I don't see him grinding out a decision here.

    Zaleski, decision
