UFC Fight Night: Assunção vs. Moraes 2 (also known as UFC on ESPN+ 2 or UFC Fight Night 144) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on February 2, 2019 at Centro de Formação Olímpica do Nordeste in Fortaleza, Brazil.[1]

Background[edit]

The event will be the third that the promotion has hosted in Ceará, following UFC on Fuel TV: Nogueira vs. Werdum in June 2013, and UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Gastelum in March of 2017.[1]

A rematch between Raphael Assunção and former WSOF Bantamweight Champion Marlon Moraes has been slated to serve as the event headliner.[2] The pairing previously met in June 2017 at UFC 212 with Assunção winning the fight via split decision.[3]

As a result of the cancellation of UFC 233, a middleweight bout between Markus Perez and promotional newcomer Anthony Hernandez was rescheduled for this event.[4]
