Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight contender, Raphael Assuncao, will rematch Marlon Moraes in the UFC Fight Night 144 headliner tonight (Sat., Feb. 2, 2019) inside Northeast Olympic Training Center in Fortaleza, Brazil, on ESPN+.
Since their first go-round at UFC 212, a split decision win for Assuncao, Moraes (21-5-1) has kept himself in the win column, smashing and trashing Aljamain Sterling and Jimmie Rivera in the process. Similarly, 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.
