The main event features a very important 195-pound catchweight fight when former middleweight title challengers Paulo Costa (13-1) of Brazil and Marvin Vettori (17-5) of Italy will attempt to begin their climbs toward another crack at champion Israel Adesanya when they meet in a five-round contest.  Both are coming off title fight losses to Adesanya, Costa 13 months ago and Vettori in June.  Costa has earned 12 of his 13 career victories by stoppage, including 11 knockouts.  Vettori has one knockout, a TKO and nine submissions. 

The co-main is a lightweight match between Grant Dawson (17-1) and Ricky Glenn (22-6).  Dawson is on an eight-fight winning streak while the southpaw Glenn has 13 KOs and has won four of his six most recent bouts. 

Calling the action will be play-by-play announcer Brendan Fitzgerald, alongside two former fighters as analysts – Paul Felder and Michael Bisping.  Megan Olivi will handle reporting duties.
