On Saturday, July 23, the UFC will host UFC on Fox 20: Holm vs. Shevchenko from the United Center in Chicago.

In the night’s main event, former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm takes on fellow striking specialist Valentina Shevchenko. Holm will be looking to rebound from a fifth-round submission loss to Miesha Tate at UFC 196 in March. Prior to that, the former world champion boxer had finished seven of her 10 wins via knockout. Shevchenko, meanwhile, will also look to bounce back from a loss at UFC 196, as she fell on the scorecards to current champion Amanda Nunes. The 28-year-old Kyrgyzstan native has finished nine of her 12 career wins, including five via submission.

The co-main event features former title challenger Gilbert Melendez against Brazilian Edson Barboza.

The 11-fight event kicks off Saturday with three preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 4:30 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts air live on Fox at 6 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card taking place at 8 p.m. ET, also on Fox.

The fighters will hit the scales at 5 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
