Alves vs.Lazzez targeted for UFC Fight Night on Jan. 20

Mounir Lazzez’s return fight is in the works.

Christian Aguilera has been forced out of his Jan. 16 bout vs. Warlley Alves (13-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) due to undisclosed reasons. Lazzez (10-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is now targeted to face Alves, but four days later at UFC Fight Night on Jan. 20 on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

Two people with knowledge of the targeted booking informed MMA Junkie of the matchup but requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make a formal announcement.

With the change, here’s the updated lineup for UFC Fight Night on Jan. 20:
Michael Chiesa vs. Neil Magny Viviane Araujo vs. Roxanne Modafferi Tyson Nam vs. Matt Schnell Francisco Figueredo vs. Jerome Rivera Pedro Munhoz vs. Jimmie Rivera Matt Brown vs. Carlos Condit Zarrukh Adashev vs. Su Mudaerji Lerone Murphy vs. Douglas Silva de Andrade Vinicius Moreira vs. Ike Villanueva Manon Fiorot vs. Victoria Leonardo Dalcha Lungiambula vs. Markus Perez Warlley Alves vs. Mounir Lazzez
