UFC on FOX 20: Holm vs. Shevchenko fight card

Check out the current card for UFC on FOX: Holm vs. Shevchenko, which goes down on Saturday, July 23rd in Chicago, Illinois.

Matt Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

We've got the 5th of a whopping 6 UFC events this July coming up on Saturday the 23rd, as UFC on FOX 20 heads to Chicago, Illinois. The main event is a big women's bantamweight fight between former champion Holly Holm and Valentina Shevchenko. You just watched Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes, but keep in mind that Holm was incredibly close to beating Tate before the dramatic rear-naked choke, and Shevchenko had a gassed Nunes in some trouble in round 3. The winner figures to be at the top of the contender line, regardless of Ronda Rousey's future in the sport.

The co-main event was supposed to be Anthony Johnson vs. Glover Teixeira, but that has since been moved to the UFC 202 co-main event, and the new UFC on FOX 20 co-headliner is Edson Barboza against Kimmy Gibbler Giblert Melendez Gilbert Melendez.
