Preview the UFC Fight Night 119 main event between middleweights Derek Brunson and Lyoto Machida ahead of UFC Fight Night Sao Paulo this Saturday.

Brunson is returning off of a win over Daniel Kelly in June of this year. His first victory following a two-fight skid that sidetracked his run toward a middleweight title shot. 

His opponent, Lyoto Machida, will be fighting for the first time in more than two years, having been sidelined because of an 18-month suspension for an anti-doping policy violation. He had lost three of his four most recent bouts before being sanctioned, so it’s a very important return for Machida, a former UFC light heavyweight champion.
