Pic: UFC on ESPN+ 2 poster drops for ‘Assuncao vs Moraes 2’

New, comments

Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight contender, Raphael Assuncao, defeated Marlon Moraes by way of split decision when they first went to war at the UFC 212 pay-per-view (PPV) event back in June 2017.

But not everyone agreed with the decision.

That’s why Assuncao and Moraes are scheduled to run it back in the UFC on ESPN+ 2 bantamweight headliner on Sat., Feb. 2, 2019 in Fortaleza, Brazil, a mixed martial arts (MMA) event co-headlined by the featherweight fracas pitting former champion Jose Aldo opposite top contender Renato Moicano.

Now they have an official poster.

Since their first go-round, Assuncao (27-5) has put together another pair of wins, including a scintillating knockout victory over Matthew Lopez at UFC Fight Night 120 roughly one year back. Similarly, Moraes (21-5-1) has kept himself in the win column, smashing and trashing Aljamain Sterling and Jimmie Rivera in the process.

Early predictions on this all-Brazilian affair?
