UFC makes its return to Brazil on Saturday night with a pair of bouts atop the card sure to please fans. Top bantamweights Raphael Assuncao and Marlon Moraes will run back their disputed decision from 2017 in a fight expected to deliver the next challenger to TJ Dillashaw’s 135-pound title. In the co-main event, Jose Aldo returns home in a bad-blood feud against Renato Moicano that could also deliver a title contender in the featherweight division. 

Plus, Demian Maia is back, looking to end a three-fight losing streak, while up-and-comer Johnny Walker looks to add another win to his growing resume.
