UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold fight card

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

A look at the UFC's next card on May 18th, as Vitor Belfort fights Luke Rockhold in Santa Catarina, Brazil in a five round main event.

Did you enjoy spending all of your Saturdays in April watching the UFC? I sure did. We'll get three weeks to recuperate before the next event in Santa Catarina, Brazil on May 18th. UFC on FX 8 features the middleweight division as contenders Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold compete in the main event, while Jacare Souza makes his much anticipated debut against Costa Philippou. My personal favorite fight on the card is Rafael dos Anjos versus Evan Dunham at LW.

The preliminary card features the likes of Francisco Trinaldo, Gleison Tibau, Paulo Thiago, and Fabio Maldonado. What stands out as the marquee fight on the prelims is a featherweight matchup between Hacran Dias and Nik Lentz; the latter has still never been on a UFC main card in going on 12 fights.

Here's what the full card looks like. The night's main card starts at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT on FX, with prelims on both Fuel TV and Facebook:
