Yancy Medeiros vs. Damir Hadzovic rebooked for UFC Fight Night on June 26

The matchup between Yancy Medeiros and Damir Hadzovic has a new date.

Medeiros (15-7 MMA, 6-7 UFC) vs. Hadzovic (13-6 MMA, 3-4 UFC) has been rescheduled for UFC Fight Night on June 26, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Two people with knowledge of the matchup informed MMA Junkie of the rebooking Saturday, but asked to remain anonymous because the promotion has yet to make it official.

The pair initially was scheduled to square off at UFC Fight Night 188 on May 22, but the fight was scrapped on the day of the event when Hadzovic had to pull out due to an illness. Hadzovic released a statement claiming a non-COVID virus had him battling a fever and a sore throat.

Medeiros, who recently moved back down to lightweight, will look to snap a three-fight losing skid. Hadzovic also will be looking to get back to the win column after dropping back-to-back fights to Christos Giagos and, most recently, a submission loss to Renato Moicano in March.

With the addition, the UFC’s June 26 lineup now includes:

  • Ciryl Gane vs. Alexander Volkov

  • Maxim Grishin vs. Ovince Saint Preux

  • Tim Elliott vs. Su Mudaerji

  • Michel Prazeres vs. Shavkat Rakhmonov

  • Justin Jaynes vs. Charles Rosa

  • Ed Herman vs. Danilo Marques

  • Raoni Barcelos vs. Timur Valiev

  • Jai Herbert vs. Renato Moicano

  • Marcin Prachnio vs. Ike Villanueva

  • Warlley Alves vs. Ramazan Emeev

  • Damir Hadzovic vs. Yancy Medeiros
