Rodrigo Nascimento to Face Don’Tale Mayes in UFC Sao Paulo

UFC fighter Rodrigo Nascimento is set to make his next octagon appearance in his home country of Brazil. The upcoming UFC Sao Paulo card, scheduled for November 4, will feature a heavyweight showdown between Nascimento and Don’Tale Mayes.

This highly anticipated fight is a rematch between the two athletes, who previously shared the octagon in May 2020. Nascimento made an impressive debut in the UFC, defeating Mayes with a rear-naked choke in the second round.

Both fighters have shown significant growth since their first encounter, making their rematch an exciting prospect. Nascimento enters the fight with two consecutive wins against Ilir Latifi and Tanner Boser. However, his victory against Alan Baudot was overturned due to a positive drug test.

Mayes, on the other hand, is coming off a knockout victory against former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski. With both athletes riding high on their recent successes, this fight will be crucial in their quest to break into the top 15 heavyweight rankings.
