UFC mixed martial arts event in 2021

UFC Fight Night: Rozenstruik vs. Gane (also known as UFC Fight Night 186, UFC on ESPN+ 44 and UFC Vegas 20) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on February 27, 2021 at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.[1]



A light heavyweight bout between former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challenger Dominick Reyes and former Rizin Light Heavyweight Champion Jiří Procházka was expected to serve as the event headliner.[2][3] However, it was announced in late January that Reyes had been forced from the contest with an injury. Subsequently, Procházka was also removed from the card and the pairing is expected to be left intact and scheduled for a future event.[4] As a result, a heavyweight bout between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Ciryl Gane (originally scheduled for UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Chimaev two weeks later) will now serve as the main event.[5][6]

Raphael Assunção was expected to face Raoni Barcelos in a bantamweight bout at the event.[7] However, Assunção pulled out of the fight in early February after testing positive for COVID-19. Promotion officials have not announced whether or not Barcelos would remain on the card against a replacement or rescheduled for another event.[8][9]

A women’s bantamweight bout between Marion Reneau and Macy Chiasson was originally scheduled for UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Volkov.[10] However, during the week leading up to the fight, Reneau was pulled from the card after testing positive for COVID-19. The bout is expected to remain intact and was rescheduled for this event.[11]

Hannah Cifers was expected to face Emily Whitmire in a women’s strawweight bout at this event.[12] However, Cifers pulled out due to undisclosed reasons and was replaced by Sam Hughes.[13] In turn, Whitmire was removed from the bout on February 14 due to undisclosed reasons.[14]
