Ngannou-dos Santos Moved To UFC Minneapolis
Per ESPN, Francis Ngannou and Junior dos Santos will fight in what amounts to a heavyweight eliminator on the June 29th card from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The fight was initially set to be a featured fight on July 9th at UFC 239, headlined by a Jon Jones light heavyweight title defense against Thiago Santos.
The original main event of UFC Fight Night Minneapolis, a welterweight rematch between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley was called off due to a hand injury suffered by Woodley in camp.
Lawler will step away from trying to fight on the ESPN card, as no potential opponent sparked the interest of the former welterweight title holder.
