Bryan Barberena was initially slated to be on the card, but he was forced to withdraw due to an injury. Ben Saunders stepped up to replace Barberena and will now face Jake Ellenberger on the main card which airs on FOX Sports 1. Another shakeup took place on the preliminary card — also airing on FOX Sports 1 — when Leonardo Santos was forced to withdraw from his bout with Nik Lentz due to a hand injury.

In the co-main event, top welterweight contenders Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington go toe-to-toe in a bout that could determine the next challenger for the 170-pound title. Former Invicta FC featherweight champion Megan Anderson makes her long-awaited UFC debut on the night, taking on former women’s bantamweight titleholder Holly Holm. Phil “CM Punk” Brooks also returns to action for his sophomore appearance in the Octagon, taking on Mike Jackson.
