Chiesa Gets Kuivanen at UFC 157
Chiesa was originally scheduled to fight Marcus Levesseur at UFC on FOX 5 earlier this month, but was forced to withdraw due to an undisclosed illness. He will most likely look to once again showcase the aggressive grappling that earned him a submission victory over heavily favored Al Iaquinta in the finale of The Ultimate Fighter Season 15 Finale.
Anton Kuivanen, meanwhile, has had a bit of a rocky start since his UFC debut last February. He was able to escape the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu attacks of Mitch Clarke to earn a hard-fought split decision win at UFC 149, but is likely in for a stiffer test against Chiesa's wrestling base when the two square off in this lightweight bout.
