The main event features the return of former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, who hasn’t fought in two-and-a-half years due to injuries, against Francis Ngannou.

In the co-main event, both James Vick and Paul Felder will be looking to return to winning form after each lost their last fight in the Octagon.

7-1 in her career to date, Cynthia Calvillo will be looking to make a serious push up the strawweight rankings in 2019, starting with a fight against the 8-6 Cortney Casey, who defeated Angela Hill last time out.

Hailing from the legendary Gracie family, the undefeated Kron Gracie (4-0) makes his UFC debut on ESPN against Alex Caceres.

Coming off a TKO win over Jake Ellenberger, Bryan Barberena will now fight in the in-form Vicente Luque, who’s won 7 of his last 8 fights in the UFC, while in the main card opener, Andre Fili and Myles Jury will battle it out at featherweight.
