UFC Fight Night Fortaleza on ESPN+

The UFC has quickly found a new home for itself on ESPN+, the streaming arm of the sports behemoth. And this Saturday, Feb. 2, it's the exclusive home of Fight Night Fortaleza as the UFC heads back to Brazil.

So, yeah. Now would be a great time to hit up that free seven-day ESPN+ trial.

The main event features bantamweights Raphael Assuncao vs. Marlon Moraes in a highly anticipated rematch (Assuncao won a split decision back in 2017), with featherweights Jose Aldo and Renato Moicano in the co-headline slot. The prelims get started at 5 p.m., with the main event kicking off at 8 p.m.

Assuncao, the No. 3 UFC Bantamweight contender (and former WSOF Bantamweight champ), is 27-5 on his career, with four knockouts and 10 submissions. Moraes, the No. 4 contender, is 21-5-1 with 10 knockouts and five submissions.

Looking to the co-main event, Aldo is 27-4 and is the second-ranked UFC Featherweight contender. He's got 16 knockouts and a single submission. Moicano (13-1-1) is the fourth-ranked contender and has six submissions.
