Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
For the first time in nearly 13 years, the Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Brazil, and the country’s biggest stars will be on hand to celebrate this historic occasion. In the main event, UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva has more than another title defense on his mind when he faces the last man to defeat him, powerful Japanese contender Yushin “Thunder” Okami. Revenge will also be on the mind of former light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua as he looks to avenge his first UFC loss against Forrest Griffin. Plus, heavyweight legend “Minotauro” Nogueira returns to face knockout artist Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub.
