UFC mixed martial arts event in 2020

UFC Fight Night: Felder vs. dos Anjos (also known as UFC Fight Night 183, UFC on ESPN+ 41 and UFC Vegas 14) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on November 14, 2020 at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.[1]



A lightweight bout between former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos and Islam Makhachev was expected to take place at UFC 254.[2] On October 8, dos Anjos tested positive for COVID-19 and was pulled from the bout.[3][4] The pairing was left intact and rescheduled to headline this event.[5][6] However on November 8, it was reported that Makhachev was forced to pull from the event due to a staph infection.[7][8] On November 9, UFC officials confirmed that Paul Felder would replace the injured Makhachev.[9]

A middleweight bout between Saparbek Safarov and Julian Marquez was initially slated for August 29 at UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Rakić.[10] However, the bout was moved to this event after Safarov faced travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.[11]

A middleweight bout between Andreas Michailidis and Antonio Arroyo was expected to take place at this event.[12] In turn, Eryk Anders replaced Michailidis on October 23 due to undisclosed reasons.[13]

Gabriel Benítez was expected to face Justin Jaynes in a featherweight bout at the event.[14] However, Benítez pulled out on October 27 due to testing positive for COVID-19 and the bout was scratched. As of now, the promotion plans on rebooking the matchup for a later date that hasn’t been determined.[15]

A women’s strawweight bout between former Invicta FC Strawweight Champions Lívia Renata Souza and Kanako Murata was expected to take place at this event.[16]
However, Souza pulled out in early November due to an undisclosed injury and was replaced by Randa Markos.[17]

A flyweight bout between Jeff Molina and Zarrukh Adashev was briefly expected to take place at this event, but was eventually rescheduled for UFC Fight Night 188.[18][19]

Bryan Barberena was expected to face Daniel Rodriguez in a welterweight bout at this event.[20] However, Barberena underwent an emergency laparotomy a week before the event due to “internal bleeding from a couple ruptured arteries in his omentum” and has been sidelined indefinitely.[21]

After losing his opponent, Ian Heinisch due to testing positive for Covid-19 at UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Teixeira, UFC made a quick booking between Brendan Allen and Sean Strickland for a 195-pound catchweight fight for the event.[22]
