UFC Fight Night: Shevchenko vs. Carmouche 2 (also known as UFC Fight Night 156 and UFC on ESPN+ 14) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on August 10, 2019 at Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9]

Background[edit]

The event will mark the promotion's first visit to Montevideo and Uruguay.[10]

A UFC Women's Flyweight Championship bout between the reigning champion Valentina Shevchenko and former title challenger Liz Carmouche has been tabbed to headline the event.[11] The pairing met previously under a regional promotion banner in 2010 with Carmouche winning the first bout via second round TKO.[12]

A light heavyweight bout between Volkan Oezdemir and Ilir Latifi was originally scheduled at UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Smith in Stockholm, Sweden and the bout was canceled after Latifi pulled out two days before the event due to a back injury,[13] and the pair was scheduled to UFC on ESPN: Covington vs. Lawler. In turn, the bout was shifted a week later to this event after Oezdemir was faced with alleged visa issues which affected his travel schedule.[14]
