Just as Lyoto Machida was set to headline a UFC card in Brazil, the organization has announced a future fight card in “The Dragon’s” hometown of Belem.

A UFC Fight Night event will takes place Feb. 3 in at Mangueirinho Gymnasium in Belem, Para, Brazil. The card is likely to air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

UFC officials announced the event, which is the first to be officially announced for the 2018 schedule, during Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 119 broadcast.

Although former UFC light heavyweight champion Machida (22-7 MMA, 14-7 UFC) is the most notable fighter on the roster from Belem, other names such as lightweight Michel Prazeres (23-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and bantamweight Iuri Alcantara (34-8 MMA, 9-5 UFC) also come from the area.
