UFC’s return to Brazil is a showcase of some of the nation’s top fighters with the main event featuring former champion and No. 2 ranked light heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira (33-8) taking on surging No.7 Jamahal Hill (11-1) for the vacant UFC light heavyweight championship. The 43-year-old Brazilian returns to his home country seeking to become a two-time champion while former Contender Series contestant and rising star, Hill, comes with a three-fight winning streak and looking for gold in what will be his first title shot.
The PPV portion of the event will also feature a flyweight historic match between Deiveson Figueiredo (21-2) and Brandon Moreno (20-6) as they meet for the fourth time in 25 months. Their first meeting was declared a majority draw. Moreno won the sequel in dominant fashion and Figueiredo took on the third matchup winning the title back and bringing the series level at 1-1-1 each.
Jon Anik will call the action joined by Paul Felder and former two-division Champion and UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier. Megan Olivi will handle reporting duties. All coverage in Spanish will be handled by Victor Davila and Santiago Ponzinibbio.
