[Fight Week] UFC on FOX 20: Fight Card and Video Preview

UFC Octagon

UFC on Fox 20 will be held on July 23, 2016, at United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

The event will be headlined by a women’s bantamweight bout between former UFC Women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm and multiple-time Muay Thai world champion Valentina Shevchenko.

The co-main event was originally scheduled to feature former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challengers Anthony Johnson and Glover Teixeira, however, Johnson pulled out on June 18 to tend to personal issues. In turn, promotion officials elected to pull Teixeira from the card and the pairing was left intact and rescheduled to take place four weeks later at UFC 202.

The co-main event now features a lightweight bout between Edson Barboza and Gilbert Melendez.
