The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns on Saturday night for UFC Fight Night 125 in Brazil.
In the main event, former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida enters the Octagon against Eryk Anders, a former Alabama football player who called for the bout, in a middleweight affair.
The planned co-main event between John Dodson and Pedro Munhoz has been scrapped after Munhoz badly missed weight, so former women’s bantamweight title contender Valentina Shevchenko will move into the slot with her bout against Priscila Cachoeira.
