Kevin Lee

The UFC’s marketing department has no shortage of work to do this spring, as the promotion is holding eight events throughout February and March. One of those cards is going down in Brasilia, Brazil on March 14th, and recently the card’s official poster dropped.

Kevin Lee vs. Charles Oliveira

The main event for UFC Brasilia will feature a compelling, lightweight fight between Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira.

Lee (18-5) is looking to build on his jaw-dropping, head kick KO of Gregor Gillespie in November. Prior to that Lee was submitted by Rafael dos Anjos in a welterweight contest.

Oliveira (28-8), meanwhile, has been on a big-time roll. “Do Bronx” has won six straight and most recently he took out Jared Gordon.

In the co-main event for UFC Brasilia, Demian Maia (28-9) will battle fellow, jiu-jitsu ace, Gilbert Burns (17-3).
