Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a little over 24 hours away from its UFC Fight Night 170 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on ESPN+, which takes place tomorrow night (Sat., March 14, 2020) inside Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.
Behind closed doors, thanks to coronavirus.
Kevin Lee, who once flirted with a permanent move to welterweight, continued to struggle on the scale, missing weight for his Charles Oliveira headliner at 155 pounds. “Do Bronx” is expected to take the fight anyway, once an agreement can be reached on financial compensation.
