Main Event

No. 8 ranked flyweight contender Amanda Ribas (12-4) faces off against fan-favorite Rose Namajunas (12-6) in the main event.

Namajunas, a former two-time strawweight champion, debuted in the flyweight division last September after a long break and returns to action with intentions of proving that she’s still one of the best in the world.

Co-Main Event

Dana White’s Contender Series alumnus Karl Williams (9-1) and Justin Tafa (7-3) collide in a heavyweight co-main event. Justin Tafa (7-3) comes in unbeaten in four straight fights while Williams has won seven straight including winning his first two fights in the UFC.
