Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is ready for a busy weekend of fights as UFC Fight Night 119 is primed and ready to kick off from inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil and will feature a Middleweight showdown between Derek Brunson and Lyoto Machida.
Brunson will welcome “The Dragon” back after a near two-year suspension for failing a drug test. Machida looks to collect his first win after dropping two consecutive losses to Yoel Romero and Luke Rockhold, while Brunson looks to pick up his second straight win.
In the co-main event of the evening, Colby Covington looks to back up all of his non-stop trash talk and promises when he faces former 170-pound title contender, Demian Maia, in his own backyard.
Before Brunson, Machida and the rest of the top-billed fighters take care of business inside the Octagon, the talented combatants were on hand to promote the events by showing off their best moves during the open workouts.
