This Saturday is going to be a landmark day for the UFC. There will be not one, but TWO (count 'em, TWO) events taking place in two different continents to comprise what is virtually a marathon of live UFC fights.
The TUF Brazil 3 Finale has seen its main event go from Chael Sonnen/Wanderlei Silva to Junior dos Santos/Stipe Miocic to Fabio Maldonado/Miocic. Maldonado is taking this fight on short notice as a heavyweight after JDS broke his hand. Underneath that headliner are the two TUF Brazil 3 finals in the middleweight and heavyweight divisions. Demian Maia fights injury replacement Alexander Yakovlev while TUF Brazil 1 featherweight winner Rony Jason meets Robbie Peralta in the main card opener.
Please note that this is a TUF Finale on Fox Sports 1 with a 10 PM ET start time, so expect the main card to finish roughly between Sunday morning ET and Wednesday afternoon. Here's the complete lineup, which will be held in the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo:
