With the end of March, the first quarter of 2024 also ended, which was not exactly good for Brazilian fighters in the UFC, who were at a slight disadvantage in duels against foreign athletes.

In 39 direct confrontations between Brazilians and foreigners in Ultimate in 2024, our representatives came out on top 19 times, but were defeated 20 times.

The month of February was the only positive one for Brazilians in Ultimate, with eight wins and five losses. The poor performance at the event in Atlantic City, last Saturday (30), was crucial for Brazil to end the quarter at a disadvantage against the rest of the world in the Octagon.

There will be no shortage of opportunities for Brazilian fighters to turn the score around in the coming months. With three events, including the historical UFC 300April has 15 representatives from Brazil with fights scheduled, including the light heavyweight champion (up to 93 kg) Alex Poatan and the former lightweight champion (up to 70.3 kg) Charles do Bronx. And right at the beginning, the month of May presents the UFC 301in Rio de Janeiro, with Brazilians in all the fights.

Check out all the results of fights between Brazilians and athletes from the rest of the world at UFC in 2024:
