Cezar "Mutante" Ferreira (5-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) claimed victory in the first season of "The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil" with a hard-fought decision win over fellow middleweight Sergio Moraes at UFC 147, but it came with an asterisk.

Moraes, who lost during his run on "TUF: Brazil," was a replacement opponent for Daniel Sarafian (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who was forced to withdraw from the card due to injury.

While it's still uncertain when Sarafian will return, he just might have an opponent waiting. UFC exec Marshall Zelaznik said the company is looking to get rid of the caveat.

"I can tell you that post-fight, (UFC president) Dana (White) mentioned to me that he looks forward to seeing [Sarafian] fight 'Mutante' to try and gain sort of what was taken from him through the injury," Zelaznik said at Saturday evening's UFC 147 post-event press conference, which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) attended. "I expect that fight to happen at some point in the future."

I wouldn't expect that too soon though, I don't think they want the guy who just won a ?4? fight contract to rack up an L so quick. You have to let this beat build.

Makes perfect sense. It gives me time to finish watching this past season too so I know what Sarafian is like. I missed the fight that got him to the finals and I can't really remember him very well from the episodes I have seen.
