UFC on ESPN 1 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on February 17, 2019 at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, United States.
While not officially announced by the organization, the promotion is targeting a heavyweight bout between former two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez and former title challenger Francis Ngannou to serve as the event headliner.
