The UFC on Fox 20 co-main event between light heavyweight contenders Anthony Johnson and Glover Teixeira set for July 23 in Chicago has been postponed, as Johnson was forced to withdraw to deal with a family matter.
UFC officials announced the fight postponement on Friday. The fight promotion is expected to rebook the bout in the near future.
UFC on Fox 20 takes place at the United Center and is headlined by a women’s bantamweight match between former champion Holly Holm and seventh-ranked Valentina Shevchenko.
Moving into the co-main event slot will be a lightweight bout between Gilbert Melendez and Edson Barboza. Heavyweights Bojan Mihajlovic and Francis Ngannou, and a strawweight battle pitting Kailin Curran against Felice Herrig round out the rest of the event’s main card.
