Daukaus vs. Khizriev Off of UFC on ABC 2

The UFC will be making their sophomore appearance on the ABC network after a successful first showing in January. The fight will be headlined by a Middleweight contest between Marvin Vettori and Kevin Holland.

The massive card now sits at 14 bouts following the first (and hopefully last) fight cancellation.

Aliaskhab Khizriev and Kyle Daukaus were set to throw down in the featured bout of the main card in the Middleweight division, but their bout has been cancelled due to COVID-19 protocols.

Their fight will be rescheduled to a later date.

Khizriev (13-0) would have been making his UFC debut after a sub-minute submission on the Contender Series that netted the undefeated Russian a UFC contract. Daukaus (10-1) made his way into the UFC win column with a decision over Dustin Stoltzfus in his last outing.

This is a fun bout that I hope gets rebooked sooner rather than later.
