What has changed in Brazil’s MMA scene since the historic UFC Rio show? Let’s start by looking at the date September 10. That’s when Jungle Fight 32 is set to go down at São Paulo’s Ibirapuera Park.

The evening’s main event will be a bantamweight title draw between Iliarde Santos and John Lineker, both of whom are from the Brazilian state of Paraná. To attend the event, the public will need only to show up at event time and present an invitation, which will be handed out for free in a number of locations a few days before the competition. The locations where invites will be handed out will be released shortly. Maximum capacity at the venue is 10,000 people. Check out the card being released by the promotion:
