There’s further title action in the co-main event with the vacant light-heavyweight belt up for grabs when Israel Adesanya goes up against Jan Blachowicz.

Kai Kara-France brings a 4-1 UFC record into his flyweight fight with Brandon Royval, who defeated Tim Elliott by submission in his Octagon debut back in May.
