Rio To Host UFC Fight Night 63

UFC 142: Aldo v Mendes

The UFC will return to Rio de Janeiro on March 21 for UFC Fight Night 63.

The fight card will mark the UFC’s sixth trip to the “Marvelous City”, but it will serve as Rio’s first ever “UFC Fight Night” event.

All five of the previous shows held in Rio were pay-per-view events.

We have confirmed that the show will take place at the Macanazinho gymnasium.

No bouts have been announced for the event at this time.

The octagon was last seen in Rio on October 25, when Jose Aldo successfully defended his featherweight belt against Chad Mendes.
