Background

A bantamweight bout between former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm and Ketlen Vieira headlined the event.[2]

A heavyweight bout between Ben Rothwell and former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challenger Alexander Gustafsson was expected to take place at this event.[3] However, the fight was canceled after Rothwell was released from the organization in late March.[4] Gustafsson is now expected to face Nikita Krylov in a light heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Aspinall.[5]

Maxim Grishin was expected to face Jailton Almeida in a light heavyweight bout at the event.[6] However, Grishin pulled out due to undisclosed reasons in late April. Almeida decided to move up to heavyweight and faced Parker Porter instead.[7]
