After all that excitement in Saudi Arabia last weekend, it’s time to return to the 4oz gloves this weekend.

On Saturday in the UFC’s latest event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, one of the organisation’s most-feared strikers, Derrick Lewis, heads to enemy territory where he will hope to snap the 14-fight winning streak owned by one of the heavyweight division’s rising stars, home country star Jailton Almeida.
