UFC Fight Night: Lee vs. Oliveira (also known as UFC Fight Night 170 and UFC on ESPN+ 28) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on March 14, 2020 at Ginásio Nilson Nelson in Brasília, Brazil.[1][2][3]

Background[edit]

A lightweight bout between former interim lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira has been slated to serve as the event headliner.[4]

A middleweight bout between Brad Tavares and Antônio Carlos Júnior was scheduled at the event. However, Tavares was forced to pull out of the fight due to an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.[5] He was replaced by Makhmud Muradov.[6] In turn, Carlos Júnior suffered from an unspecified injury and the bout was cancelled from the event.[7]

A women's strawweight bout between Paige VanZant vs. Amanda Ribas was scheduled at the event. However, VanZant was forced to pull out of the fight due to an undisclosed injury. VanZant requested to reschedule the bout one month later but Ribas decided to remain at the event and Randa Markos stepped in as the replacement.[8]
