The cast of combat sports characters was on the scene today in Fortaleza, Brazil, talking to the mixed martial arts (MMA) media and hyping up this weekend’s (Sat., Feb. 2, 2019) UFC Fight Night 144 event on ESPN+ (score your free trial here).
Front and center were bantamweight headliners Raphael Assuncao and Marlon Moraes, who collide in the five-round main event for the right to challenge for the 135-pound strap later this year (per Dana White).
Right behind them were featherweight co-headliners Jose Aldo and Renato Carneiro. “Junior” is punching the clock until his inevitable retirement while “Moicano” wants to get himself back into the 145-pound title hunt.
Watch them all bump bridges in the embedded video player above.
Elsewhere on the card, Demian Maia keeps plugging along at welterweight opposite longtime veteran Lyman Good, while Charles Oliveira looks to keep his win streak alive against the rough-and-tumble David Teymur.
