The UFC is back in Brazil on September 24th for a Fight Night card in the nation’s capital of Brasilia. Cris Cyborg will headline the event in a 140 lbs catchweight bout against Lina Lansberg, who is making her UFC debut. Her nickname is the “Elbow Princess.” Seems a good nickname to me.
In a co-main event that really shows you how times have changed, Phillipe Nover will take on Renan Barao, who is coming off consecutive losses to T.J. Dillashaw and Jerremy Stephens. Also slated for the main card is Roy Nelson against Antonio Silva, which is … definitely a fight that’s been booked in 2016.
No bout order has been confirmed outside of the top 3 bouts, but this event is essentially full. OlimpoMMA recently confirmed prelim matchups Luan Chagas vs. Shinsho Anzai, as well as Vicente Luque against Hector Urbina.
