UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs Covington, also known as UFC Fight Night 178 and UFC Vegas 11, will be the promotion’s final offering from the States before heading back to Fight Island for five consecutive events. The date of the event is September 19. (19/09/20)
The fight card will be the twentieth since resuming with live events early in May.
All scheduled bouts on the UFC fight card will emanate from the UFC’s Apex facility in the city of Las Vegas, with fighters competing within the confines of the 25-foot cage at the venue.
The event has three fights locked with UFC welterweight contenders Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington fighting in the main event. The duo has real-life bad blood, which would make for superb storytelling in the buildup to September 19.
A women’s strawweight bout featuring Mackenzie Dern and Randa Markos also is scheduled for the event. The former will aim to secure a ranking saving win as she is teetering right at the edge at #15. Meanwhile, Markos hopes a win could see her have a late-career run as a ranked fighter.
The event will also see the US debut of Khamzat Chimaev. The fighter has finally gotten a visa and will battle Gerald Meerschaert at middleweight.
UFC veteran Donald Cerrone will make a third octagon appearance in 2020. The 37-year-old has lost his last four bouts and would want to get the monkey off his back when he takes on Niko Price. Incidentally, both fighters lost their respective bouts at UFC 249.
Ranked light heavyweight fighters Johnny Walker and Ryan Spann will duel with the former having the pressure squarely on him. Walker has suffered defeat in his last two fights while Spann is riding an eight-fight winning streak.
