UFC on ESPN+ 28 is still going ahead tomorrow, in an empty arena in Brasilia, Brazil. The event is yet another casualty of COVID-19, which is drastically affecting sports across the globe.

The main event of UFC Brasilia was supposed to feature lightweights Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira. Lee is coming into this one off of a highlight reel finish over Gregor Gillespie at UFC 244. Do Bronx is riding a six fight winning streak with all finishes, including wins over Nik Lentz and Jim Miller.

However, Lee did not make it to the stage within the official two hour window. He did weigh in back stage and weighed 158.5 lbs (per Raphael Marinho). Oliveira successfully weighed in at 156 lbs. Lee was told by doctors he could no longer cut weight. According to Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting, it was up to Oliveira if the fight takes place.

Marinho and Gruz reported that Oliveria would accept the fight with Lee, with Lee forfeiting 20% of his purse.

All other fighters successfully made weight.

The co-main was scheduled to be Demian Maia vs. Gilbert Burns. That may now serve as the headliner. Making up the remainder of the main card is Renato Moicano vs. Damir Hadzovic (lightweight), Johnny Walker vs. Nikita Krylov (light heavyweight) and Franicsco Trinaldo vs. John Makdessi (lightweight). The prelim card is headlined by Jussier Formiga vs. Brandon Moreno (flyweight).

The ceremonial weigh-ins have been canceled due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19.
