UFC on ESPN: Reyes vs. Weidman (also known as UFC on ESPN 6) is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on October 18, 2019 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.[1][2]

Background[edit]

A light heavyweight bout between Dominick Reyes and former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman has been slated to serve as the event headliner.[3]

A featherweight bout between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Calvin Kattar was scheduled to take place at this event. However, in mid-September promotion officials elected to reschedule the pairing for undisclosed reasons and take place three weeks later at UFC Fight Night: dos Santos vs. Volkov.[4]

A middleweight bout between Brendan Allen and Eric Spicely was scheduled for the event.[5] However, Spicely was forced to withdraw from the event due to an undisclosed reason.[6] He was replaced by Kevin Holland.[7]

At the weigh-ins, Deron Winn and Manny Bermudez missed the required weight for their respective fights. Winn weighed in at 188.5 pounds, 2.5 pounds over the middleweight non-title fight limit of 186. Bermudez weighed in at 148 pounds, 2 pounds over the featherweight non-title fight limit of 146. Both bouts will be held at catchweight. Winn and Bermudez were fined 20% of their purse, which went to their opponents Darren Stewart and Charles Rosa respectively.[8]
