Like to see more of Yuri and will get a tough opponent in Omi.

Second match up isn't bad, semi-unknowns.

I'm a big fan of Alcantara. This will really show us where he stands.

My biggest complaint about UFC 142 is it's all the same Brazilians fighting on the card aside from the head and co headliners. There are a ton of other Brazilians who would be great for the card who didn't fight the 1st time. Nunes, do Bronx, Maia, Barrao to name few. Good matchups but would like to see different names

Both are legit, especially Carvalho. This isn't the the Carvalho that murdered Barboza in muay thai, this is the one that used to be a Shooto stalwart. He was out for a couple years with injuries, but has looked good since he came back last year, and has hung tough with guys like Hioki, Takaya, and Inoue.

I've been waiting for Carvalho to debut for a long time now. I see him winning this one.
