On Saturday, Feb. 2, the UFC will host UFC on ESPN+ 2: Assunção vs. Moraes 2 from the Centro de Formacao Olimpica do Nordeste in Fortaleza, Brazil.
In the night’s main event, top-10 bantamweights Raphael Assunção and Marlon Moraes collide for a second time. The pair met just 18 months ago in the UFC debut of Moraes.

Also on the card, former featherweight king José Aldo takes on fast-rising prospect Renato Moicano.
