UFC Brasilia fight poster released

New, comments
Charles Oliveira (EL)

Lightweight headliners Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira are featured in the poster for the UFC’s first event in Brazil this year.

Welterweight veterans and submission experts Demian Maia and Gilbert Burns are second-billed on the poster, released on Monday by the UFC’s Twitter account in Brazil.

Lee is three months removed from a spectacular knockout of Gregor Gillespie at UFC 244, which put him back on even footing after a 1-3 skid depressed his stock. In his way is Oliveira, who’s campaigned loudly for better opportunities and blasted the powers-that-be over a lack of them.

UFC Brasilia takes place March 14 at the Nilson Nelson gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil, and is expected to stream live on ESPN+.
