Marlon Moraes forced Raphael Assuncao to tap out in the very first round due to a guillotine choke to win their UFC Fortaleza main event rematch. Moraes now hopes to get a future shot at the UFC bantamweight championship.

In the co-main event, Jose Aldo stopped Renato Moicano in the second-round with a flurry of strikes. After the fight, Aldo told the crowd that he wants to compete again in Brazil this May. The former longtime UFC featherweight champion only has two bouts remaining in his legendary MMA career.
