The Brazilian did not give up under any circumstances and gave his fans a final heroic and heartbreaking performance in equal parts.

Teixeira announced that, at the age of 43, he has retired from mixed martial arts.

The other opportunity that a Brazilian lost to be champion was at flyweight, where the Mexican

Brandon Moreno

defeated the local

Deiveson Figueiredo

by technical knockout , giving a bittersweet end to a historic rivalry.

The swelling of Figueiredo's eye, after a legal blow by Moreno, forced a medical stoppage and deprived fans of a better outcome.

'The Assassin Baby' showed his category and returns to the top of the UFC.

In the rest of the night, despite the fact that the two Brazilian title opportunities did not occur, the public at the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro was able to celebrate the victories of their other three representatives on the main card.

Gilber Burns

returned after his war against the Russian Khamzat Chimaez and did not disappoint.

The Brazilian, a black belt in jiu-jitsu, took the American Neil Magny to the canvas and finished him in the first round.

'Durinho' knocked him down on the first chance he had, he was looking for and consolidating positions and submitted an impotent Magny with a triangle.

Burns, 5th best welterweight fighter, despite the loss to Chimaev left a great impression and reaffirmed himself again against Magny (12th).

He looked several notches above his rival and issued a warning to the second best fighter in the division: "Colby Covington I'm coming for you."

In the women's flyweight category, Brazilian

Jessica Andrade

overwhelmed American wing Lauren Murphy.

Andrade prevailed via unanimous decision after a terrifyingly dominant performance in which she landed 237 total punches, more than double her opponent's (103), of which 231 were significant.


Johnny Walker

settled his light heavyweight engagement against Britain's

Paul Craig

on the fast track in the first round.

Walker landed several power hands on Craig as he tried to take him down.
