UFC on ESPN 58’s Douglas Silva de Andrade ‘not going to leave anything to chance’ vs. Miles Johns

Douglas Silva de Andrade intends to return from a 13-month layoff with force on Saturday when he meets Miles Johns at UFC on ESPN 58.

De Andrade (29-5 MMA, 7-5 UFC) has been sidelined with injuries since a unanimous decision over Cody Stamann at UFC on ABC 4 in May 2023, but now the 38-year-old looks to achieve a fourth win in his past five fights against Johns in their bantamweight bout at the UFC Apex in las Vegas (ESPN2, ESPN+).

“I just want to put out a great performance, put on a strong performance out there,” de Andrade told MMA Junkie and other reporters through an interpreter at Thursday’s media day. “Another battle – not leave anything to chance. Obviously leaving everything in the hands of God, but still, always looking for the win and the finish.”
