UFC 198 looks set to be a showcase of the best Brazil has to offer in MMA. With current heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum headlining a card full of his fellow countrymen and women. UFC 198 takes place in Curitiba, Brazil on the 14th of May.

All but one fight on the UFC 198 card sees a Brazilian fight someone from the rest of the world and in the only other fight, it is Brazil vs Brazil, as Jacare Souza takes on Vitor Belfort in the co-main event, a fight with definite title implications for the winner.

The home fighters range from UFC legends to top contenders and current champions to rising stars. It is clear that the UFC is rewarding the Brazilian market for its continued loyalty. After speculation that they had saturated the market, when an event was changed from Brazil to Las Vegas in January, they are putting on the greatest show ever to take place outside the United States.

In the main event Werdum defends his title against top contender Stipe Miocic. This will be Werdum’s first defence of his title. Also on the card is Anderson Silva, one of the greatest fighters in UFC history. He takes on perennial top contender Uriah Hall.

There is also the small matter of Invicta featherweight champion Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino making her UFC debut when she takes on Leslie Smith in a catchweight bout.

This is definitely an event worth getting excited about.
