The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight titleholder will defend his belt in the main event of the UFC 153 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card, currently slated for the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Oct. 13, 2012.

UFC officials made the announcement earlier today.

Aldo was originally set to battle Koch at this weekend’s UFC 149 event in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, however, it was later announced the fight would be derailed (along with many other “Cow Town” match-ups) because of an injury to the Brazilian’s leg.

Looks like “Junior” is all patched up and ready to go.
