After hosting four highly successful UFC events at the Yas Islands in Abu Dhabi, UFC is back to the fight capital of the world. UFC on ESPN+ 31 will feature a mouth-watering middleweight clash between Edmen Shahbazyan and Derek Brunson in the main event.
In the co-main event, we will see a women’s flyweight fight between Joanne Calderwood and Jennifer Maia. Later in the undercard, we will see a highly anticipated welterweight clash between Randy Brown and Vincente Luque.
Ray Borg was also supposed to fight on this card, but he had to pull out a day before the fight.
