UFC mixed martial arts event in 2020

UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Chimaev (also known as UFC Fight Night 183, UFC on ESPN+ 41 and UFC Vegas 17) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on December 19, 2020, at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.[1]



A welterweight bout between Leon Edwards and Khamzat Chimaev is expected to serve as the event’s headliner.[2]

A flyweight bout between Matt Schnell and Tyson Nam is expected to take place at the event.[3] The pairing was previously scheduled to take place in September at UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill.[4] However, the fight was cancelled on the day of the event’s weigh-in as Schnell was deemed medically unfit to compete due to complications related to his weight cut.[5]

A welterweight bout between Belal Muhammad and Sean Brady was expected to take place at this event.[6] However in late October, Muhammad revealed that Brady had a broken nose and had to pull out of their bout.[7] He was replaced by Dhiego Lima.[8]

Deron Winn and Antônio Braga Neto were expected to meet in a middleweight bout at the event.[9] In turn, Braga Neto was removed from the contest due to undisclosed reasons and replaced by Antônio Arroyo, thus changing the contest to a catchweight of 195 pounds.[10]
