Holly Holm Vs. Irene Aldana which was the main event of the August 1, setting of the UFC Fight Night is now off. This would be the second main event in a month to get deferred, first of course being the Welterweight fixture between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns which could not take place at the coveted UFC 251.

Derek Brunson Vs. Edmen Shahbazyan: The New Main Event
Derek Brunson Vs. Edmen Shahbazyan, which was earlier the co-main event of the night, has now given the elevation of the main event tag. Like UFC 251, where Jorge Masvidal dramatically took the spot light, the same will not happen at this event.
The new main event between the two MMA professions Derek Brunson and Edmen Shahbazyan, has also seen two previous failed attempts to take off, one in March and another one in April. However, this time the situation is different and the contest will eventually come off this time.
The Fight Night Event on August 1, 2020 will take place at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. With this event UFC will return to its original Base of Nevada, after four successive events at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
