UFC Fight Night 28 Tickets On Sale

Tickets for the UFC’s return to Brazil in September go on sale today via Tickets for Fun.

The event, UFC Fight Night 28, takes place September 4 from Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

In the headline fight, Glover Teixeira will face Ryan Bader at light heavyweight. The two are a combined 12-3 in the UFC, including a 4-0 mark by Teixeira (21-2).

“It’s a dream to make a major fight in the UFC,” Teixeira stated, “(especially) in the state where I was born. I have no words to describe what I’m feeling. I can fight in front of my family, who will all travel to watch me.”

Bader, a former Ultimate Fighter winner, is 15-3 in his career and competing in Brazil for the first time.

“I’m looking forward to fighting in Brazil for the first time – I heard that the fans are amazing,” Bader stated. “I may not be the favorite of Brazilians, considering that I will face one of its most outstanding fighters, but I’m training, I’m ready for war. I know that a win over Glover will help me move up the rankings and I’m working hard to get back to the route of the title.”
