The UFC makes their much anticipated return to the birth place of martial arts from the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janero, Brazil, the same venue that played host to their last event in Rio past September that featured Anderson Silva obliterating Yushin Okami.
Tonight the main event features UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo defending his ten pound of gold for the first time on home soil against world-class wrestler Chad Mendes. Additionally Brazilian superstar Vitor Belfort will welcome Anthony Johnson to the middleweight division.
All the action begins on Facebook at approximately 4:15pm PT/7:15pm ET for one bout. The action continues on FX at 5pm PT/8pm ET before the pay-per-view begins at 7pm PT/9pm ET.
