    Crude Brazilian Portuguese to English translation

    Marcos Pezão faces debutante in search of recovery at UFC Denver

    Brazilian, who comes from defeat in his last appointment, fights on January 28 against John Phillips, who has the nickname "Mike White Tyson" and is from Wales

    Finished in the first round last month, when he faced Gadzhimurad Antigulov in São Paulo, Marcos Pezão did not want to know to wait long to return to the octagon and has already marked his next appointment. The Brazilian will face John Phillips on January 28, in Denver (USA), as he learned from Combate.com with sources linked to the organization.


    Marcos Pezão has 14 wins, four defeats and a career tie and goes to his sixth showdown in the organization. With two setbacks in the last three performances, he tries to recover inside the event so he will not be in a delicate situation. In the three times that came out victorious of the octagon, the result was still in the first round, being two knockouts and a finalization.


    John Phillips, who will make his debut in the company, has the nickname "Mike White Tyson," which already explains the knockout lighthouse that the Welsh has. That's how he clinched 17 of his 20 wins in the cartel, including his last four bouts, three of which ended in the first round. He also has six setbacks and a No Contest.

    Phillips is from SBG, so I already dislike him.

    Is it really going to be a MW fight? Lima is huge.

    The floodgates have well and truly opened for Welsh fighters.

    This will be a fun brawl while it lasts.
