Arena Jaragua


Felipe Arantes could never really get the offense going against the lanky featherweight, Edmilson Souza, at UFC Fight Night 28, losing a split decision to his fellow Brazilian. He’s now 2-1-1 in his last four fights, including wins over Antonio Carvalho and Godofredo Castro, and a draw against Milton Vieira.

Maximo Blanco found a way to shoot himself in the foot once again, this time getting disqualified for blatant knees to the head of grounded opponent against Akira Corassani at the Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale. The loss was his third in four fights, also including losses against Pat Healy and Marcus Brimage. Blanco’s only win during his time in the UFC was a unanimous decision win over Sam Sicilia at the Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.
