UFC returns to Rio de Janeiro with a card filled with Brazilian fighters.

In the main event, flyweight champion Alexandre Pantoja returns to defend his strap against challenger Steve Erceg. The fight marks the fourth-ever in the UFC for Australia’s Erceg.

The biggest fight on the card is perhaps the co-main event which features the legendary former featherweight champion Jose Aldo’s comeback. The Brazilian retired last year, but will be back to face the tough Jonathan Martinez in a highly anticipated bout.

The card also features fighters like Michel Pereira, Paul Craig and former title challenger Anthony Smith. Check out the UFC 301 fight card below!
