As it stands, the current fight card for Las Vegas is Brunson vs. Shahbazyan 

After a four Event run at Abu Dhabi, UFC will be back in Vegas.

On August 1st, UFC Apex was supposed to be the host of a women’s bantamweight fight between Holly Holm and Irene Aldana. However, Aldana tested positive for COVID-19 so the fight was scrapped.

In the new headliner, Edmen Shabazyan will look to continue his quick rise at middleweight when he meets solid gatekeeper, Derek Brunson. The new co-main event will see late replacement Joanne Calderwood jumping in to fight Jennifer Maia.
