Edson leading the Brazilian squad

Twelfth placed in the featherweight rankings, Edson Barboza arrives packaged at UFC Las Vegas 92. The Ultimate veteran comes from two consecutive victories, the last of which was an incredible upset over the Nigerian Sodiq Yusuf after almost being knocked out in the first round. On the other side of the octagon will be Englishman Lerony Muprhy, undefeated in his career and who could take the Brazilian's place in the top-15, if he wins.


Still on the main card, the bantamweight (up to 61,2kg) Vinicius Salvador will have a 'life or death' confrontation against the North American Adrian Yanez. Hired after participating in the reality show 'Contender Series', the Brazilian was defeated in his two commitments in the organization and could end up prematurely ending his time in the largest MMA organization in the world, in the event of a new setback.

Number nine in the strawweight ranking (up to 52,2kg), Luana pinheiro wants to resume the good sequence of positive results that was found before the setback to Amanda ribas, in November 2023. The Brazilian fighter's rival will be the experienced Angela Hil, who is coming off victories over Denise Gomes in the middle of the Ibirapuera Gymnasium, in São Paulo.

One of the most experienced Brazilians on the Ultimate squad, hired in 2014 when he won the third edition of TUF Brazil, the middleweight (up to 83,9kg) Warlley alves tries to get rid of the delicate phase in which he finds himself, with three consecutive defeats and without knowing what a positive result is since January 2021. On the other side of the cage, there will be the Russian based in Germany Abus Magomedov.


For the bantamweight division (up to 61,2kg), Tamires Vidal and Melissa Gatto Brazilian fighters face a duel on the preliminary card of the show. After more than two years of absence from the Octagon, the strawweight Ariane Sorriso tries to resume his career and the sequence of triumphs against the Venezuelan Piera Rodriguez.

First Tupiniquim of the night to climb into the octagon, the bantamweight Kleydson Rodrigues tries to equalize its record in the organization and return to the path of victories against the Chinese Alatengheili.
