UFC Brasilia Weigh-In Results
Even under the most abnormal of circumstances, UFC Brasilia is still on! Dana White and company are continuing to hold one of its premier events despite the coronavirus affecting a majority of the world, sports and beyond.
Inside the Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brazil, March 14 will see an event with no fans inside. Additionally, the ceremonial weigh-ins are cancelled as well as media day.
“Due to consideration of the government’s decree yesterday, Ultimate Media Day has been cancelled,” the UFC stated, via Cageside Press. “Content featuring the athletes scheduled to fight in Saturday’s event will be captured and shared with credentialed media members in advance of the event.”
The regular weigh-ins are still on, however, and all fighters will take to the scale in preparation of the event.
The main event will be Kevin Lee v. Charles Oliveira. Lee (18-5) is on a one-fight win streak after returning to the lightweight division. His last fight was a knockout-win over Gregor Gillespie at UFC 244 in November. Oliveira (28-8, 1NC) is on a six-fight win streak dating back to 2018. He won three fights in 2019: a submission win against David Teymur, a TKO-win against Nik Lentz and a knockout-win over Jared Gordon back in November. The last fight was also in Brazil.
