Rua( 27-13) is entering Saturday’s contest riding a two-bout losing streak. He’s an experienced veteran in the UFC but has never been able to go on an extreme hot streak. The most he’s won is three in a row. The last time we saw him in the octagon was in May when he lost to Ovince St. Preux in a third-round split decision.
Potieria ( 19-3) will have his third fight in the UFC on Saturday. He lost his first bout against Nicolae Negumeranu in July 2022 via second-round KO/TKO. He’s looking to get back into the win column. Before this loss, he had won 15 straight bouts albeit not in the UFC still impressive
