The Brazilian is still trying to get back to championship form after challenging Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title in 2019. That bout, which he lost via split decision, cost him a lot physically- tearing various ligaments and suffering a cracked tibia.

The 38-year-old is 1-2 since he returned to action. Santos’ last fight was in October, when he won over Johnny Walker via unanimous decision. He has a 22-9 record.
