Each portion of the event — the main card broadcast on ESPN3 and the Superfight Series shown on UFC Fight Pass — will have five bouts. The main event of the evening will see Nieky Holzken defend the GLORY welterweight championship against Murthel Groenhart.
The rest of the main card will feature middleweight bouts, including a one-night, four-man middleweight tournament. Ariel Machado will meet Yousri Belgaroui, while Israel Adesanya takes on Robert Thomas. The winners will meet in the final, which will determine who gets a future GLORY middleweight title shot.
