The UFC returns to Brazil this weekend with UFC on FX 8 and a middleweight main event between Vitor Belfort and Strikeforce import Luke Rockhold.
The event, which is Brazil’s second so far this year, takes place Saturday at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina.
UFC on FX 8's main card airs on FX (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) following prelims on FUEL TV (6 p.m. ET) and Facebook (4:30 p.m. ET).
