On Saturday, Oct. 28, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 119: Brunson vs. Machida from the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in São Paulo, Brazil.
In the night’s main event, former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida returns from a two-year suspension to battle Derek Brunson. Prior to his suspension, the Brazilian Machida had fallen on tough times, losing three of his last four bouts inside the Octagon. Brunson, meanwhile, snapped a two-fight losing streak of his own in his most recent appearance, a 76-second destruction of Daniel Kelly in June.
The co-main event features recent welterweight title challenger Demian Maia against wrestling stalwart Colby Covington. Maia saw a seven-fight winning streak come to an end at the hand of champion Tyron Woodley earlier this year. The 29-year-old Covington has reeled off four straight victories to earn his crack at a top-10 opponent.
The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with two preliminary-card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. Four additional prelims air live at 8 p.m ET on Fox Sports, with the six-fight main card following at 10 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
