New, comments

Live, blow-by-blow updates for today’s UFC empty arena event in Brasilia on ESPN, which features a catchweight fight on top.

Join us today on Bloody Elbow for live results, discussion, round scoring, and play-by-play (main card) as UFC Fight Night: Lee vs. Oliveira goes down in an empty arena in Brasilia, Brazil.

The headliner should have taken place in the lightweight division, with Kevin Lee taking on Charles Oliveira. However, Lee didn’t make weight, so they’ll compete at a catchweight with Lee giving up 20% of his purse. The co-main comes at welterweight, with Demian Maia taking on Gilbert Burns.

Due to all the coronavirus concerns, there have been a few changes to this show. First of all, fans will not be in attendance in the arena. Second, the event was moved over to big ESPN and will air two hours earlier than originally intended. The seven-fight prelim card will start at 3pm ET, and the five-card main card will go down at 6pm ET. The event will air fully on ESPN due the lack of other sporting events at the moment, but will also stream on ESPN+ as well.
