Warlley Alves, Nicolas Dalby set to meet at UFC 283


Warlley Alves will return from a 18-month layoff to face Nicolas Dalby at UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Jan. 21, the company announced Monday.

UFC 283 will air live on pay-per-view and feature a title unification bout between flyweight titleholders Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno.

Alves (14-5), who withdrew from a clash with Jack Della Maddalena in January 2022, hasn’t competed since losing to Jeremiah Wells in June 2021, five months after his brutal first-round knockout over Mounir Lazzez in Abu Dhabi.

Dalby (20-4-1, 2 no contests) fought once before in Brazil, defeating Elizeu Zaleski via split decision in his UFC debut in 2015. Dalby won a decision over Claudio Silva in his most recent octagon appearance in July, bouncing from a loss to Tim Means a month before.
