Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues to bash us over the head with these weekly ESPN+ fight cards, for better or for worse, including the upcoming UFC Fight Night 164 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, scheduled for Sat., Nov. 16, 2019 inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
That’s where local hero and former middleweight contender, Ronaldo Souza, will make his light heavyweight debut against No. 5-ranked Jan Blachowicz. This will be an opportunity for “Jacare” to put the 205-pound division on notice, just as it will be an opportunity for the Polish power puncher to take another step toward a championship title shot.
And now we have an official poster!
Also announced for UFC Fight Night 164 is the light heavyweight showdown between former division kingpin, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, and ex-middleweight slugger, “Smile’n” Sam Alvey. In addition, Bobby Green collides with Francisco Trinaldo in lightweight action, while Jack Marshman and Markus Perez hook ‘em up at 185 pounds.
