Almeida took on Albert Morales at the Sao Paulo event, and proceeded to put away the very game bantamweight in the second round. The fight marked the first time Almeida had fought, since he was taken out by fellow contender Cody Garbrandt in May.
After his win Saturday, Almeida spoke to the UFC’s Jessica Portasio about the win, and his next bout. You can catch the interview below. The Brazilian is currently ranked #11 in the UFC’s 135 division.
