In 2024, the UFC has already determined the path for its first events this year, having already determined the defense of the belts. Now it's time to fill those cards with other big fights, and Brazil already has several fights scheduled for next year.

UFC 299, which took place in March, featured several matches featuring Brazilian fighters. At the gala, which will be headlined by the fight between Sean O'Malley and the bantamweight belt-worthy Marlon Vera, Rafael dos Anjos will face Polish Mateusz Gamrot in one of the fights of the gala according to MMAFighting.

Dos Anjos recently fought in the welterweight division, losing to compatriot Vicente Luque. Returning to the category in which he was a champion, the Brazilian is trying to give direction to his long MMA career and will face an opponent who was recently a “reserve” at UFC 294 and is one of the most promising fighters in the 70 kg weight.

In addition to Rafael dos Anjos, Jailton Malhadinho will also be present at UFC 299, where he is scheduled to fight Curtis Blaydes. This fight was supposed to take place in November last year at the UFC gala in São Paulo, but the American had to leave the gala and his place was taken by Derrick Lewis. As a result, Ultimate decided to postpone the fight, especially considering the Brazilian heavyweight's criticized performance against the “Black Beast”.

Karine Silva will also leave her mark on this event. The Brazilian fighter will face Lauren Murphy at the March event to try to maintain her undefeated record in Ultimate, one of three fights. Moreover, “Killer” has a chance to get closer to the possibility of fighting for the flyweight belt against an opponent who has also established herself in the fight for a “shot at the title”.
