UFC Fight Night 62 is set to kick off shortly from the Macaranazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The event features a welterweight proving ground between rising No. 14-ranked Ryan LaFlare and respected No. 7 veteran Demian Maia, who will look to end the touted prospect’s undefeated streak by handing him his first loss in the Octagon.
The main event is precluded by another welterweight scrap when longtime ‘prospect’ Erick Silva will take on another experienced opponent in late replacement Josh Koscheck.
In other action, dangerous Blackzilians team member Gilbert Burns will look to keep his hype train rolling against Alex Oliveira, Amanda Nunes meets Shayna Baszler in a pivotal women’s bantamweight bout, and young featherweights Godofredo Pepey and Andre Fili will fight for positioning in a talented 145-pound arena.
