Pantoja has won five fights in a row, most recently a unanimous decision over Brandon Royval last December in his first defense of the 125-pound title. Erceg is riding an 11-fight winning streak that began in 2018 as he looks to seize the moment and claim the belt.

  • Ascending bantamweight Jonathan Martinez (19-4) welcomes Jose Aldo (31-8) back to the Octagon in the co-main event. Martinez comes in with a six-fight winning streak ready to secure his biggest win yet by spoiling Aldo’s return. Aldo returns for the first time in 21 months looking to get back in the win column and celebrate a victory in front of his hometown crowd after being inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame last year.
