UFC FIGHT NIGHT 70 — SAT. JUN. 27, 2015 MACHIDA VS. ROMERO
At the HARD ROCK CASINO
The event was originally expected to be held at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in São Paulo, Brazil. However on May 15, the event was moved to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. This is the first time a Ultimate Fighter Brazil Finale will be held outside of Brazil.
The event was expected to be headlined by a welterweight bout between Rick Story and Erick Silva. However, due to the venue change, the bout was moved to the co-main event spot and the event will now be headlined by a middleweight bout between former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and Yoel Romero.
Also featured on the card will be the lightweight and bantamweight finals of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 4.
