The UFC returns this week with a Fight Night card in Brazil that looks... lack luster. Mostly that’s because it’s a card ravaged by injuries and late replacement fights, most of which have been downgrades from the planned originals. Not necessarily a fault of the UFC, but put a lot of less than thrilling matchups on an FS1/FS2 pace, and fans could be in for a really slow night of fights.
