In the main event there’s featherweight title action as defending champion Alexander Volkanovski goes up against interim titleholder Yair Rodriguez.

Then in the co-main event flyweight champion Brandon Moreno heads into a rematch with Alexandre Pantoja, who beat him by unanimous decision back in 2018.

Then there’s what’s expected to be a middleweight title eliminator between former champion Robert Whittaker and Dricus Du Plessis, who has won all five of his UFC fights to date.

Jalin Turner’s five-fight winning streak ended last time out with a split-decision loss to Mateusz Gamrot and now he’ll look get back to winning ways against Dan Hooker, who brushed off back-to-back losses by claiming a TKO victory over Claudio Puelles in his last appearance.

Highly touted Contender Series prospect Bo Nickal earned a 1st round finish in his debut last year and now fights Tresean Gore, who lost his first two UFC fights, but then bounced back with a submission win last time out.
