Check out the fight card and bout order for UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Machida on Saturday, October 28th in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The UFC’s final Brazilian event of 2017 is an absolutely terrific Fight Night card in Sao Paulo. In the main event, middleweight contender Derek Brunson welcomes Lyoto Machida back to the Octagon, as Machida returns from an 18-month USADA suspension. Recent welterweight title challenger Demian Maia will look to halt Colby Covington’s progress up the rankings, in an intriguing co-main event.
Just going through the rest of the main card, Rob Font against Pedro Munhoz is a phenomenal bantamweight fight, as is John Lineker against Marlon Vera. Lightweight veterans Jim Miller and Francisco Trinaldo will face off in what should be a good matchup, and Thiago Santos takes on Jack Hermansson in a quality middleweight battle.
A couple of late changes to this event: Luan Chagas is out, so Vicente Luque has stepped up to take on Niko Price in the feature FS2 prelim. Boston Salmon was scheduled to fight late-replacement Raoni Barcelos, but Salmon suffered an injury, so both men are off the card.
