In what’s become an annual habit, UFC returns to Brazil for one of its biggest pay-per-view occasions of its first year, stacked with battles you won’t want to miss.
UFC has hosted nine pay-per-view episodes in Brazil since 2011 and has record in their respective countries dating back to 1998′ s Ultimate Brazil. Fortaleza hosted UFC Fight Night in February for the rematch between Assuncao and Moraes, and the promotion’s set to return to Sao Paulo in November.
UFC’s strong ties to Brazil have as much to do with its fanatic fanbase and the deep biography of Brazilian jiu-jitsu as it does the sheer rank of talent the country creates. The main event placard for UFC 237 is stacked with Brazilian aces, most notably Jessica Andrade( challenging Rose Namajunas for the strawweight deed ), middleweight Anderson Silva( taking on Jared Cannonier ), and no. 1 ranked featherweight Jose Aldo( facing Alexander Volkanovski ).
Here’s everything you need to know about UFC 237, includes the full fight poster and how to watch online.
