The poster does not depict the trilogy fight for the flyweight title between Brandon Moreno (1) and Daveson Figueiredo (2). Moreno won his second meeting in June in a dominant fashion, finishing with Figueiredo via rear naked choke in the third round to secure the title. However, their first meeting ended in a draw with a close majority, and in the absence of other problems, a third meeting was scheduled between Moreno and Figueiredo.
Also on the main card, middleweight contenders Derek Brunson (4) and Jared Cannonier (6) face off in a duel that could crown the new No. 1 challenger at 185 lbs.
