UFC Fight Night: Anderson vs. Błachowicz 2 (also known as UFC Fight Night 167 and UFC on ESPN+ 25) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on February 15, 2020 at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.[1]

Background[edit]

The event will be the first that the promotion has hosted in Rio Rancho, after previously contesting UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Khabilov in nearby Albuquerque in June 2014.[2] Zuffa previously hosted a World Extreme Cagefighting event, WEC 32, at the venue in 2008.[3]

A light heavyweight rematch between The Ultimate Fighter: Team Edgar vs. Team Penn light heavyweight winner Corey Anderson and former KSW Light Heavyweight Champion Jan Błachowicz is expected to serve as the event headliner in a possible title eliminator.[4] The pairing previously met in September 2015 at UFC 191, with Anderson winning the encounter via unanimous decision.[5]
