UFC Brasilia: Fight Card


We have a great night of fights to look forward to this weekend, as the UFC heads to Brasilia for UFC Fight Night 170. Headlining the card is a great lightweight match up between the No. 8 ranked Kevin ‘The Phenom’ Lee and the No. 13 ranked Charles ‘Du Bronx’ Oliveira. What a fight that’s going to be! Lee had a bit of a rough patch there for a little while, but rebounded in a huge way over the formerly undefeated Gregor Gillespie, and Oliveira hasn’t looked better in his entire career than he has as of late.

Johnny Walker returns for the first time since his first UFC defeat, and against another incredibly dangerous finisher, like himself. Gilbert Burns gets his first ranked opponent at welterweight, Renato Moicano makes his lightweight debut, Enrique Barzola makes his bantamweight debut, Alexey Kunchenko returns for the first time since his first career defeat against Gilbert Burns, we have a great main event to the prelims, and a great opener to the main card.
