Amidst a global pandemic the UFC is in action on Saturday night from Brasilia, Brazil to bring you UFC Fight Night 170. Yes, you read that right, while most of the other sports organizations around the world have suspended operations due to COVID-19 the UFC has decided the show must go on. However, UFC Fight Night 170 will take place without any fans in attendance, only staff members and key personal will be in the building during the fights.
The main event will have Kevin Lee taking on Charles Oliveira even though Lee missed weight yesterday. Cutting weight with the stress of this virus possibly canceling the event entirely is not an ideal situation to be in. Lee is coming off a highlight reel head kick knockout win over Gregor Gillespie back at UFC 244. Oliveira is riding an impressive six fight winning streak and most recently had a TKO victory over Jared Gordon at UFC Fight Night 164.
Other notable fights on the card include Johnny Walker taking on Nikita Krylov, two Brazilian combat sport icons Demian Maia and Gilbert Burns will meet in the cage and Jussier Formiga finishes off the preliminary card against Brandon Moreno.
You can catch all the action on ESPN+ or TSN in Canada.
