On Saturday, Feb. 3, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 125: Machida vs. Anders from the Mangueirinho Gymnasium in Belem, Para, Brazil.

In the night’s main event, former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida takes on surging middleweight Eryk Anders. The 39-year-old Machida finds himself in the midst of a three-fight skid, including a first-round knockout loss to Derek Brunson in his return from a two-year suspension from the USADA. Anders, meanwhile, has opened his career with 10 straight victories. The former University of Alabama linebacker has scored two straight wins inside the Octagon to earn his first headlining spot.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with two bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card airing live at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
