One significant alteration was made to the PPV main card as the fight featuring Casey O’Neill, who made a comeback, and Jennifer Maia, who had once challenged for the title, was given more priority than the Joanne Wood vs. Luana Carolina match.
The latter contest has now been moved to the early preliminary card. In chief support, Justin Gaethje, the former interim lightweight champion, faces off against Rafael Fiziev.
Additionally, the event will feature a welterweight match between Gunnar Nelson and Bryan Barberena.
