UFC mixed martial arts event in 2020

UFC Fight Night: Hall vs. Silva (also known as UFC Fight Night 181, UFC on ESPN+ 39 and UFC Vegas 12) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on October 31, 2020 at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.[1]



UFC President Dana White has announced that this will be Anderson Silva‘s final fight in the UFC. He is considered one of the greatest of all time and still holds the record for most consecutive wins in the organization (16) and longest title reign in UFC history (2457 days).[2][3]

A middleweight bout between former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and Uriah Hall has been targeted for the event and is slated to serve as the headliner.[4] The pairing was initially scheduled to meet at UFC 198 in May 2016.[5] However, Silva pulled out due to acute cholecystitis, which required a cholecystectomy.[6]

Raulian Paiva was expected to face Amir Albazi in a flyweight bout at the event. However, Paiva pulled out of the fight on September 11 citing a knee injury.[7] He was replaced by Zhalgas Zhumagulov and their contest is expected to take place at UFC Fight Night 184.[8]

A middleweight bout between Wellington Turman and Sean Strickland was expected to take place at the event.[9] However on September 29, Turman pulled out due to COVID-19 sequelae that unabled him from training after his two-week quarantine ended on September 24.[10] He was replaced by Jack Marshman.[11]

A middleweight bout between Krzysztof Jotko and Makhmud Muradov was briefly scheduled to take place at UFC Fight Night: Ortega vs. The Korean Zombie two weeks earlier, before being moved to this event.[12] In turn, Jotko pulled out of the bout due to a broken toe and he was replaced by Kevin Holland.[13]

Aaron Phillips was expected to face Adrian Yanez in a bantamweight bout at the event. However on October 20, Phillips pulled out due to an undisclosed injury.[14] Yanez is now expected to face promotional newcomer Victor Rodriguez.[15]
