Comunicado de UFC Fight Night: Felder vs. Dos Anjos

Debido a una enfermedad no relacionada con COVID, el peso ligero No. 12 del ranking Islam Makhachev ha sido retirado de su pelea en el evento principal este fin de semana con el ex campeón de peso ligero de UFC Rafael Dos Anjos. En lugar de Makhachev estará The Irish Dragon, el peso ligero No. 7 del ranking Paul Felder. Felder, ganador de cinco de sus últimos siete, viene de una batalla de Fight of the Night con Dan Hooker en febrero.

Due to weight management issues with Saparbeg Safarov, the middleweight bout between Safarov and Julian Marquez has been canceled from tomorrow’s event.

Due to weight management issues with Eryk Anders, the middleweight bout between Anders and Antonio Arroyo has been canceled from Saturday’s event.

Bantamweight Louis Smolka has been deemed medically unfit to compete and his bout against Jose Quinonez  has been canceled from Saturday’s event.

Additionally, Brendan Allen, originally scheduled to compete last weekend, has been added to the card in a 195-pound catchweight bout against fellow middleweight standout Sean Strickland. Strickland, who looks to build on his current two-fight win streak, will compete in the quickest turnaround of his career after a dominant decision win over Jack Marshman on October 31.
