In the main event, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson will be facing Geoff Neal in a fight with contrasting striking styles. The fight is pivotal to the trajectory of both men’s careers, as it could mean gatekeeper status for Thompson in the eyes of the UFC, and it could also boost either fighter to being one or two fights away from a title shot.
The co-main event will feature the former featherweight king Jose Aldo pursuing his first bantamweight win in taking on Marlon Vera. The main card will also feature highlight artists Michel Pereira and Khaos Williams doing battle as well high-level bouts: Marlon Moraes vs. Rob Font, Gillian Robertson vs. Taila Santos, and Greg Hardy looking to prove he is worthy of the “high level” adjective in his bout against proven veteran Marcin Tybura.
The kick-off time for the event is 7:00 PM ET, with the early prelims kicking off at 4:30 PM. The UFC Apex will play host to this card.
