Leading the way will be a main event super fight for the ages as UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski puts his 12-0 UFC record on the line in a jump up to lightweight. He’ll meet newly crowned champion and all-around world beater, Islam Makhachev. It is a matchup of the No. 1 and No. 2-ranked pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.

Adding to the mix will be a co-main event clash between featherweight veterans Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett. With Volkanovski taking his talents to 155 pounds for the time being Rodriguez and Emmett will collide for the interim UFC featherweight title, although it’s really just a glorified No. 1 contender’s bout.
