Almeida said. “I will ask for the No. 4, No. 3. I think Ciryl and I would make a good fight. He was once the interim belt.”
Jailton Almeida is traveling to his second consecutive UFC Sao Paulo Main Event with the goal of making an impact in Brazil. Then he will fight top fighter Ciryl Ganes.
In the octagon, “Malhadinho” has so far shown that he is unstoppable, outstriking his five prior opponents by a score of 114-2 on his way to victories. Almeida, who defeated Jairzinho in the first round of a match they played in May, will face Derrick Lewis at UFC Sao Paulo on Saturday. Lewis will fill in for Curtis Blaydes, who is injured.

After UFC Sao Paulo Jailton Almeida Aims To Fight Ciryl Gane
On the Trocação Franca podcast of MMA Fighting, Almeida stated that “nothing has changed in preparation” for Lewis in contrast to his prior approach, and he is fully aware of “The Black Beast’s” ability to knock opponents out.
Blaydes now holds the No. Almeida was able to test himself against the best heavyweights in the world by competing in MMA Fighting’s global rankings.
Lewis, however, draws a bigger crowd to Almeida’s second-ever main event.
Almeida could improve his record to 6-0 by winning on Saturday. The following week, Tom Aspinall, Sergei Pavlovich, and the UFC 295 interim champions will defend their titles, so it may not give him the chance to win. Almeida is now looking to face a different high-ranked opponent in 2024.
Almeida stated. “I will ask for the no. 4, No. 3. I think Ciryl Gane and I would be a good fight, a man that once had the interim belt.”
Gane only lost one fight in his two UFC championship battles with Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou. The French fighter, however, recently defeated Serghei spivac with a TKO victory. In the UFC, he also has victories against Tai Tuivasa. Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Alexander Volkov. Junior dos Santos.
