Holly Holm Vs. Irene Aldana is set for another go, this time on October 3. The match was previously the headliner of UFC Vegas 5.
Holly Holm Vs. Irene Aldana, which was earlier fixed as the main event of August 1, fight night event, was taken off from the fight card back then, after Irene Aldana was found Corona positive just 10 days before the event. At that time, the co-main event of Edmen Shahbazyan Vs. Derek Brunson was promoted to become the main event, but it was notified by UFC that the original headliner will be rescheduled at a later date. And thus Holly Holm Vs. Irene Aldana is booked again, this time the date is October 3, 2020.
