The official Twitter account of the UFC released the event’s poster:
Ngannou vs. dos Santos was initially set to take place at UFC 239 on July 6. The UFC Minneapolis main event was supposed to feature a welterweight rematch between Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler. Woodley went down with an injury and a replacement opponent for Lawler couldn’t be agreed upon. As a result, Ngannou vs. dos Santos was moved to the UFC Minneapolis card.
UFC Minneapolis will feature a flyweight scrap between Joseph Benavidez and Jussier Formiga. Also set for the main card will be a welterweight battle between Demian Maia and Anthony Rocco Martin. The main card will air live on ESPN. You can catch the prelims on ESPN+.
