In a highly anticipated rematch, Manel Kape and Matheus Nicolau are gearing up to settle the score in the electrifying five-round main event of UFC Fight Night on April 27, promising fans a night of unforgettable action at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

Following the initial announcement during the Brazilian broadcast for UFC Mexico City, multiple sources have confirmed Kape vs. Nicolau as the headline bout, with MMA Mania first breaking the news.

The rematch comes after their scheduled clash in January was derailed when Kape missed weight by three and a half pounds due to illness during fight week. Despite his valiant efforts to compete, the bout was ultimately scrapped, leaving both fighters eager for redemption.

For Kape, this fight holds personal significance as he seeks to avenge his previous loss to Nicolau in 2021, aiming to extend his four-fight winning streak and solidify his position in the flyweight division's title contention.

Meanwhile, Nicolau is determined to bounce back after a setback against Brandon Royval, eager to reignite his momentum and reclaim his status as a force to be reckoned with in the division.

With the stage set for an epic showdown, fans can expect fireworks as Kape and Nicolau collide once again in a battle for supremacy.

As the countdown to April 27 begins, anticipation mounts for the additional fights expected to be announced, promising an unforgettable night of MMA action.
