Graves will face Sergio Moraes at UFC Fight Night 100 on November 19, Esther Lin of MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Graves is unbeaten in professional MMA fights so far, and fought to a majority draw in his last UFC fight against Bojan Velickovic in July. The young welterweight will look to continue his streak against Moraes, who is adept at submission finishes.
Graves defeated Vicente Luque (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) via unanimous decision at The Ultimate Fighter Finale: American Top Team v. Blackzilians on Sunday in Las Vegas.

Fantasy Analysis

This was the "co-main event" from The Ultimate Fighter season. Graves won this fight based on the strength of six takedowns. He was in total control for the first two rounds before slipping a bit in the final round. Still, it was an impressive performance and it keeps Graves undefeated. American Top Team got the last laugh in this bout.
