The UFC is back in the APEX for a Fight Night card on Saturday, July 9th. In the main event, former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos takes on rising contender Rafael Fiziev in a bout that was originally set for UFC 272 before Fiziev was forced off the card with COVID-19. RDA would beat up Renato Moicano on short notice in the meantime, and now these two top-15 lightweights have been rescheduled for main event status.
In the co-main event, Caio Borralho takes on Armen Petrosyan in a battle of Dana White’s Contender Series signings. The featured prelim pits Cynthia Calvillo against Nina Nunes, who is moving up to flyweight for this one.
If David Onana can’t get a replacement opponent in time then he won’t be on this card as scheduled. Austin Lingo unfortunately withdrew due to injury.
