With a fight card consisting of Paulo Filho, Vitor Belfort, and Ricardo Arona (to name a few), the country of Brazil is heavily represented on both the Main Card and Undercard of the Bitetti Combat Event.

While the card has yet to be officially finalized, August 3 has been named the date where the governer of Rio de Janeiro will officially announce the entire card.

The main card and undercard are listed below.
