UFC returns to Fortaleza

Back To Brazil On February 2, 2019

The UFC returns to Fortaleza, Brazil on February 2 with a highly-anticipated rematch that has title implications in the bantamweight division. In 2017, Raphael Assuncao scored a razor-thin split decision win over Marlon Moraes, but now the two top-five contenders meet again and the stakes are higher than ever. 

Plus, perennial welterweight contender Demian Maia pits his world-class submission game against hard-hitting New Yorker Lyman Good.
