Blaydes is 3-2 in his last five fights and is coming off a first-round TKO loss to, Sergei Pavlovich, at UFC Vegas 71 back in April. Almeida meanwhile is undefeated in his six promotional bouts at 6-0 and will try to build off a first-round submission victory over, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, at UFC on ABC 4 last month.
