UFC FIGHT NIGHT: ALMEIDA vs. LEWIS aired live in Asia on Sunday, November 5 from the Ibirapuera Arena in São Paulo, Brazil. A raucous and MMA-savvy crowd chanted for the Brazilians stacked on the card as they went 7-3, including a dominant performance by #9 heavyweight contender Jailton Almeida.

In an unexpected turn of events, No. 9 ranked heavyweight submission specialist Jailton Almeida dominated the main event against No. 10 knockout artist Derrick Lewis, taking the bout to a full five rounds. Employing perfectly timed takedowns in each round, Almeida exhibited control over Lewis on the canvas, skillfully alternating between submission attempts and ground-and-pound from mount. Despite Lewis showcasing his resilience by defending until the final bell, the decision decisively favored Almeida.

Welterweights Gabriel Bonfim and Nicolas Dalby showcased starkly contrasting styles in their matchup, creating an exhilarating co-main event. Bonfim, much to the joy of his hometown supporters, dominated the first round by bringing his opponent into his realm of grappling. However, Dalby staged a comeback in the second round, aggressively engaging in clinches and delivering powerful knees that ultimately led to a knockdown, marking the first defeat on the Brazilian's record.Top of Form
