Headlining the event will be a women’s Strawweight title fight that will see Rose Namajunas defend her strap against Jessica Andrade. This will be “Thug’s” second title defense since winning the strap and then immediately defending it against Joanna Jedrzejczyk. For Jessica, it will be her second opportunity to try and win UFC gold after coming up short against the aforementioned Jedrzejczyk back in 2017.
In the co-main event, Anderson Silva will take part in UFC fight number 23 when he takes on Jared Cannonier in Middleweight action. Also, Jose Aldo will look for back-to-back wins when he steps in to face off against the red-hot Alexander Volkanovski.
