Warlley Alves Faces Taleb at UFC 190

On the heels of today's announcement of the UFC 190 bout between welterweight contenders Neil Magny and Demian Maia, the UFC made another 170-pound matchup for the event official Wednesday, with The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 winner Warlley Alves facing off against Canadian veteran Nordine Taleb on August 1 at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

UFC 190 is headlined by the UFC women's bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey and Bethe Correia, and also features the highly-anticipated rematch between Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Rogerio Nogueira.

A top Brazilian prospect who is unbeaten as a pro, with UFC wins over Marcio Alexandre and Alan Jouban, Rio's Alves will get a tough battle out of Taleb, who is also perfect in the UFC thus far, with victories over Vik Grujic, Li Jingliang and Chris Clements.
