Cancelled UFC event on April 9, 2020 was a cancelled mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that was scheduled to take place on April 9, 2020 at Astana Arena in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.[1][2]

Background[edit]

This event was initially planned to take place at Astana Arena in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan and would have been the first that the promotion had contested there.[1][2] However, it was announced by UFC president Dana White on April 9 that starting with UFC 249, all future events were indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]

While not officially announced by the organization, the promotion was also targeting a bantamweight bout between former WSOF Bantamweight Champion and UFC Bantamweight Championship challenger Marlon Moraes and Petr Yan to serve as the original event headliner.[4]

Abreu was initially targeted to face Gadzhimurad Antigulov on June 13, 2020 at UFC Kazakhstan.[5] Subsequently, the Kazakhstan event was later cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[6] As a result, Abreu was rescheduled to face Jamahal Hill on May 30, 2020 at UFC on ESPN: Woodley vs. Burns.[7] He lost the fight via technical knockout in the first round.[8]
