UFC Nashville took place inside the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Headlining the card was a welterweight clash between Stephen Thompson and Anthony Pettis. It was Pettis who scored a second-round knockout victory. Pettis earned a $50,000 bonus for “Performance of The Night.”
The co-main event saw heavyweight action. Curtis Blaydes went one-on-one with Justin Willis.
