UFC FN 51: Gleison Tibau to Take on Piotr Hallman
By FCF Staff
Following Gleison Tibau’s decision win over Pat Healy at UFC Fight Night 45, the lightweight vet has been booked to face Piotr Hallman.
The two will square off at UFC Fight Night 51, which will go down on September 13th in Brasilia, Brazil.
Tibau’s (29-10) victory over Healy returned the massive 55′er to the winning column, after he was knocked out by Michael Johnson at UFC 168 in December. The American Top Team fighter is 3-2 in his last 5 bouts.
Hallmann (15-2) is also coming off a win, as the Polish lightweight tapped out Yves Edwards at a UFC Fight Night card in June. Hallmann has gone 2-1 since arriving in the UFC last year.
UFC FN 51 will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Andrei Arlovski and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
