Fight Night Sao Paulo

Fight Night Sao Paulo”

The fight was Machida's first since June 2015, after which he served an 18-month USADA suspension for the use of a banned substance.

Derek Brunson scored the biggest win of his career Saturday night, knocking out former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida.

Unfortunately for Machida, however, Brunson spoiled his potential return with yet another first-round finish when he floored "The Dragon" early with a massive left hand that opened the door for an onslaught of fight-ending ground and pound.

28, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 119: Brunson vs. Machida from the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in São Paulo, Brazil.

As the fight got underway, Brunson showed patience while finding his range against a notorious counter striker in Machida, who has eaten up past opponents who jump into his lightning quick punches when getting a little reckless. The official time was 2:30 of round one. Maia may have brought the first round with viable striking, yet he was not able to secure a takedown in the second or third adjusts, and Covington began to overwhelm. Yet, against Machida, he figured out how to strike a harmony between quiet offense and heedless aggression that caused issues down the road for him in a session against current middleweight titleholder Robert Whittaker.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with two preliminary-card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET.
