    SIR

    Nice pairing

    Crude Brazilian to English translation

    Jussier Formiga faces Dustin Ortiz September 24 at UFC Brasilia

    The Brazilian, which is the third in the flyweight rankings, will measure forces with American owner of 12th place. Card will Cyborg x Lansberg in the main event

    Third place in the Ultimate flyweight ranking, Jussier Formiga back to the Octagon on September 24 in Brasilia to face Dustin Ortiz, owner of 12th place. The information was calculated by Combate.com to sources close to the situation.
    The Brazilian, who has 18 wins and four setbacks in his career, was three straight victories before being defeated by Henry Cejudo in November. Last time I fought in Brazil, Ant defeated Wilson Reis by unanimous decision in May 2015.
    Ortiz already coming off a loss to Wilson Reis in January. The American has 15 wins and five setbacks in his career and will fight for the second time on Brazilian soil - in November 2013, he beat Jose Maria Tome in "UFC: Belfort x Henderson" in Goiânia.

    Formiga should win. He beats pretty much anyone but the elites.

    The first step back on Formiga's road to the UFC title. As long as he actually uses his long arms to try and jab this time, unlike when he fought Cejudo and he only used his right-straight, he'll win.

    I look forward to this! Ortiz isn't a top 5 fighter but I find his style very entertaining.

    I thought they already fought for a sec. but it was actually Makovsky.

    I only enjoy Ortiz in scrambles tbh, Idk how many he can win against here with Formiga's ground game.

    Thought of this fight this morning -- on the toilet of all places. Long layoff for both. Good fight.

    This card is looking surprisingly good. I guess I'll spend some more and get the good seats.

    Formiga should win this. His stand up is better and even though Ortiz probably has the better wrestling, Formigas ground game is on another level
