07:00, 10 May 2023

The UFC returns to Charlotte, North Carolina for the first time since 2018 this Saturday. Heavyweight big hitter Jairzinho Rozenstruik is in the main event against rising Brazilian star Jailton Almeida. It’s been a huge year for the UFC’s big men, with Jon Jones capturing the Heavyweight Championship back in March. Now two of the chasing pack will get a chance to jockey for position in a five-round headline attraction.

The co-main event sees former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challenger Anthony Smith take on Ireland-based Brazilian Johnny Walker over three rounds. This was originally the headliner and it is easy to see why. A fight of true quality between two world-ranked 205-pounders.
