Deron Winn vs. Antonio Braga Neto Slated for UFC’s Dec. 19 Card

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 30, 2020


Deron Winn will return to the Octagon to square off against Antonio Braga Neto at a UFC event on Dec. 19.

Winn announced the middleweight contest on his Instagram account. The UFC Fight Night event is likely to be held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card does not yet have a headliner.

Winn was suspended for nine months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after testing positive for amphetamines in relation to a submission loss to Gerald Meerschaert at UFC 248 on March 7. The American Kickboxing Academy product began his professional tenure with six straight triumphs before dropping consecutive fights to Darren Stewart and Meerschaert.

Neto, meanwhile, has competed just three times since joining the Las Vegas-based promotion in 2013. After beginning his UFC career with a victory over Anthony Smith, the 32-year-old Brazilian fell to Clint Hester and Trevin Giles in his next two appearances. His most recent outing, a KO loss to Giles, occurred at UFC Fight Night 123 in December 2017.
