The Fight Night event will feature a main fight between highly ranked heavyweights Curtis Blaydes and Jailton Almeida.
The first encounter between Nascimento (10-1, 1 no contest) and Mayes (10-5, 1 no contest) took place in May 2020, where Brazil’s “Ze Colmeia” emerged victorious with a second-round rear-naked choke.
After experiencing his first career loss against Chris Daukaus five months later, Nascimento is heading into UFC Sao Paulo on the back of consecutive victories over Ilir Latifi and Tanner Boser.
Mayes, on the other hand, had just faced defeat against Ciryl Gane in his UFC debut when he originally squared off with Nascimento in Jacksonville, Florida. Since then, “Lord Kong” has only suffered one defeat in his subsequent five UFC bouts.
The 31-year-old heavyweight, known for his three appearances in Dana White’s Contender Series, recently triumphed over former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski in a bout ended with a second-round TKO finish.
