UFC 224 rolls into Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with a train full of Brazilian fighters looking to represent the green & yellow inside in the Octagon. We have a 13-fight slate on tap for Saturday night with Amanda Nunes in the main event as a -900 favorite over Raquel Pennington. In the co-main event Jacare Souza is taking on Kelvin Gastelum in a barn-burner of a matchup in the Middleweight division. In the UFC “Masters” division 41-year-old Vitor Belfort is taking on 39-year-old Lyoto Machida where the winner of the bout earns a free hip replacement and prune juice for the next two years! Hopefully they can both stay up until their fight starts around 11:00 PM, as they would have eaten dinner around 4:00 PM earlier that day. Should be an interesting battle with walkers being allowed in the cage of a sanctioned MMA competition for the first time ever!

Without further ado, let’s get on with the preview of a card that has a good mix of young, old, and very old!
