Eagle
FC
returns to the United States for another intriguing card
full of prospects and veteran fighters.
EFC 47
is headlined by former
Ultimate Fighting Championship
heavyweight titleholder Junior dos
Santos
as he looks to get back in the win column against
Yorgan De
Castro
.

While the main event heavyweights had no trouble making weight,
four other fighters were heavy. This includes middleweights
Maki
Pitolo
and Dough Usher, who weighed in 187.4 and 189 pounds,
respectively. Also overweight was Alexandre
Almeida
, who was 158.4 pounds for his lightweight bout against
Roosevelt
Roberts
, and Paulo
Silva
, who came in .6 pounds over the lightweight limit for his
fight with Sean
Soriano
.

This is the first fight for dos Santos (21-9) since being released
by the UFC. The end of “Cigano” inside the Octagon came after a
four-fight skid, although all to top heavyweight contenders
including current champion Francis
Ngannou
. The Brazilian will look to rebound here and pick up
his first win since a May 2019 knockout over Derrick
Lewis
. Dos Santos looked great on the scale and weighed 245.6
pounds.

Another recent UFC release, De Castro (8-3) has since won
back-to-back fights on the regional circuit. “The Mad Titan” first
won a unanimous decision over Danyelle
Williams
and followed it up at
Eagle FC 44
with a submission win over Shaun Asher
in just 1:04. De Castro looks to pick up the biggest win of his
career against “Cigano” and officially weighed 264.2 pounds.

Eagle FC 47 will air live and free on FLXcast at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m.
PT.
