Still as a middleweight athlete (up to 83,9kg), Poatan won his first two commitments in the organization, against Andreas Michailidis e Bruno Blindado. With a 'hype' already established, the former Glory champion began to be avoided by the division's elite, except for the 'top of everything' Sean Strickland, who agreed to face him in the UFC 276, in July 2022.


Inside the octagon, Strickland didn't shy away from the exchange with Poatan and attacked the Brazilian from the beginning of the confrontation. With its already known precision, the pupil of Glover Teixeira landed a cross that made the North American stumble, and then landed a straight shot that sent the loudmouth to the knockout immediately and declared the Tupiniquim athlete's third consecutive triumph, the last before the reunion with Israel adesanya.

Now as light heavyweight champion, Poatan will defend his reign for the first time on the historic card of UFC 300, scheduled for next Saturday (13), at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas (USA).
