Almeida (19-2 MMA) will enter the contest sporting a fourteen-fight winning streak, with his five most recent victories coming under the UFC banner. In his most recent effort this past May, the Brazilian submission specialist picked up a first-round stoppage victory over perennial contender Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

Meanwhile, Derrick Lewis (27-11 MMA) last competed at July’s UFC 291 event, where he scored a first-round TKO victory over Marcos Rogerio de Lima. That win snapped a three-fight losing streak for ‘The Black Beast’, as Lewis had previously suffered stoppage losses to Tai Tuivasa, Sergei Pavlovich and Sergey Spivak respectively.

UFC Fight Night 231 is co-headlined by a welterweight matchup featuring Gabriel Bonfim taking on Nicolas Dalby.

Bonfim (15-0 MMA) will be looking to keep his perfect record intact when he fights in front of a hometown crowd in Brazil. ‘Marretinha’ has gone 2-0 since joining the UFC ranks, scoring first-round finishes over Mounir Lazzez and Trevin Giles.

Meanwhile, Nicolas Dalby (22-4-1 MMA) is currently riding a three-fight winning streak, his most recent being a unanimous decision victory over Muslim Salikhov this past June. All five of Danish fighters most recent Octagon victories have come by way of decision.

UFC Fight Night 231 also features a highly anticipated middleweight bout between Caio Borralho and Abus Magomedov.

Borralho (14-1 MMA) will enter the fight sporting a thirteen-fight winning streak, with four of those victories coming inside of the Octagon. ‘The Natural’ most recently competed this past April at UFC Vegas 72, where he earned a second-round submission victory over Michal Oleksiejczuk.

Meanwhile, Abus Magomedov (25-5-1 MMA) will be returning to action for the first time since suffering a TKO loss Sean Strickland back in July. That loss snapped a three-fight winning streak for the Russian standout, who previously racked up stoppage wins over Slavis Simeunovic, Cezariusz Kesik and Dustin Stoltzfus.
