The UFC’s latest stop in Brazil has arrived with a number of the region’s beloved battlers ready to take to the Octagon and entertain their countrymen. Included in the bunch are longtime legend Vitor Belfort, who will face Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold in the main event, as well as high-level fighters such as Hacran Dias, Gleison Tibau, Rafael dos Anjos, Paulo Thiago, and Ronaldo Souza.

For the most part things went as planned including a heated face-off between the headliners where officials had to intervene to keep things from turning physical. During the scuffle, Belfort even turned towards the crowd and did a throat-slitting motion in relation to his expectations for beating Rockhold tomorrow night at UFC on FX 8.
