Almeida made quick work of heavy-handed Jairzinho Rozenstruick, while Walker bested one-time UFC title challenger Anthony Smith. Both Brazilian fighers have been surging of late.
Almeida, a heavyweight, is now 5-0 in the UFC, with all five of his wins being finishes. For Walker, he’s on a three-fight winning streak and experiencing a resurgence after once being considered the future of light heavyweight.
Although there is still a lot of mountain left to climb for both men, which do you believe in more to possibly win a UFC title?
