UFC 301 Fight Card

UFC 301 takes place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this coming Saturday night, May 4th and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

In the main event there’s a flyweight title fight as current champion Alexandre Pantoja looks for his 2nd successful defense of the belt against Steve Erceg, who is still only ranked No.10 in the division, but has won all three of his Octagon encounters so far, including a KO of Matt Schnell last month.

In the co-main event ‘The King Of Rio’ Jose Aldo comes back from MMA retirement after a sting in boxing to finish up the remaining fight on his UFC deal against No.13 ranked bantamweight Jonathan Martinez, who is on a six-fight winning streak.

Anthony Smith has lost three of his last four fights and is coming off a TKO loss as he prepares to fight the 11-0 undefeated Vitor Petrino, who has won all four of his UFC fights so far.

Michel Pereira carries a seven-fight winning streak into his next fight against Ihor Poteiria, who is coming off a win, but had suffered back-to-back TKO losses before that.

Opening up the main card will be Paul Craig, who was submitted by Brendan Allen last time out – his third loss in four fights, and now faces Caio Borralho, who has had a perfect 5-0 run in the UFC to date.
