Kevin Lee is coming off an exhilarating victory over a previously undefeated opponent. Charles Oliveira has won six fights in a row — all finishes.
These two dangerous lightweights meet on Saturday in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Brasilia, Brazil. The fights will be put on without fans in the arena due to the coronavirus pandemic that has postponed or canceled numerous sporting events throughout the world.
The fights are on both ESPN and ESPN+, with the main card beginning at 6 p.m. ET, the prelims at 3 p.m.

Last November, Lee (18-5) landed a head kick in the first round that knocked out Gregor Gillespie, who came into that bout with a 13-0 record.
Oliveira (28-8, 1 NC) is coming off a first-found knockout of Jared Gordon in November, the Brazilian’s second straight KO after four submissions in a row — bringing his UFC total to a record 13 subs.
The co-main event is a matchup of middleweight jiu-jitsu aces Demian Maia and Gilbert Burns.
Maia (28-9) has won three fights in a row, most recently a submission of onetime Olympic wrestler Ben Askren. Burns (17-3) has won four in a row.
