UFC Fight Night: dos Anjos vs. Lee (also known as UFC Fight Night 152 or UFC on ESPN+ 10) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that was held on May 18, 2019 at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York.[2][3]

Background[edit]

The event marked the promotion's first visit to Rochester, New York.[2]

A welterweight bout between former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos and former interim lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee served as the event headliner.[4]

Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos was briefly linked to a welterweight matchup with Neil Magny at the event. However on March 28, dos Santos announced that he had not been contacted by the UFC about the match.[5] Magny was instead scheduled to face Vicente Luque.[6] In turn, Magny pulled out of the bout on May 13 due to testing positive for Di-Hydroxy-LGD-4033.[7] He was replaced by promotional newcomer Derrick Krantz.[8]
