The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Sao Paulo on Saturday with a card that has changed quite a bit since it was first announced months back.
Original headliners Jimi Manuwa and Glover Teixeira we’re both forced out of the main event slot, with Thiago Santos moving up from middleweight to replace Teixeira. When Manuwa announced he, too, was out of the fight, the main event became Santos vs. Eryk Anders, two former middleweights who will look to try their luck in the light heavyweight division.
Elsewhere on the card, Brazilian MMA legends Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Renan Barao take on Sam Alvey and Andre Ewell, respectively, with former UFC title challenger Thales Leites locking horns with former Bellator champion Hector Lombard on the card’s prelims.
