Renan Barao Misses Weight, Headliner Set

169


The
Ultimate Fighting Championship
returns to Sao Paulo on Saturday
with a card that has changed quite a bit since it was first
announced months back.

Original headliners Jimi Manuwa
and Glover
Teixeira
we’re both forced out of the main event slot, with
Thiago
Santos
moving up from middleweight to replace Teixeira. When
Manuwa announced he, too, was out of the fight, the main event
became Santos vs. Eryk Anders,
two former middleweights who will look to try their luck in the
light heavyweight division.

Elsewhere on the card, Brazilian MMA legends Antonio
Rogerio Nogueira
and Renan Barao
take on Sam Alvey and
Andre
Ewell
, respectively, with former UFC title challenger Thales
Leites
locking horns with former Bellator champion Hector
Lombard
on the card’s prelims.
