Francisco Drinaldo Confirmed For TUF Brazil

MMA Sun is able to confirm that Francisco “Massaranduba” Drinaldo will compete in the middleweight portion of the Ultimate Fighter Brazil.  It seems odd that Drinaldo would compete as a middleweight since he is a natural lightweight.  In other words, he is competing two weight classes above his weight class.  However, Drinaldo is a real talent.

It is assumed that Drinaldo was oon the cusp of a UFC offer prior to his loss to Iuri Alcantara.  Instead Alcanatara got the UFC offer and Drinaldo had to start over.  Nevertheless, Drinaldo is 10-1 and has tons of potential.   It will be interesting to see how Drinaldo handles much bigger opponents.  Regardless, he is a good prospect and would be a great addition to the UFC roster.
