Chiesa-Trinaldo Set for UFC 173

UFC 173 adds an intriguing lightweight matchup...
After wins in three of his last four bouts, Brazilian lightweight Francisco "Massaranduba" Trinaldo will make his United States debut at UFC 173 on May 24, as he has verbally agreed to face Ultimate Fighter season 15 winner Michael Chiesa in Las Vegas.

Trinaldo, who competed on season one of TUF Brazil, is coming off a split decision win over Jesse Ronson in February. Chiesa is fresh from a win as well, picking up Submission of the Night honors for his November victory over Colton Smith.
