The main event is a heavyweight title unification bout as UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou (16-3) battles undefeated interim champion Ciryl Gane (10-0). This will be Ngannou’s first title defense following a KO win over Stipe Miocic in March.  Ngannou has won 15 of his last 17 fights and overall has 11 first-round finishes.  Gane has wasted no time rising through the heavyweight ranks, capturing the interim title with a spectacular TKO win over Derrick Lewis in August.  A former professional kickboxer, he has also delivered notable victories against Alexander Volkov, Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Junior Dos Santos.

In the co-main– a highly anticipated rematch and trilogy fight– UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno (19-5) defends his title against the man he defeated to win the crown, Deiveson Figueiredo (20-2).  Initially featured on The Ultimate Fighter season 24, Moreno is the first native of Mexico to hold a UFC title.  A powerful striker and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, Figueiredo has scored with memorable wins over Joseph Benavidez (twice), Tim Elliott and Alexandre Pantoja.

Jon Anik will call the action, alongside former two-division UFC champ Daniel Cormier and Joe Rogan.  Megan Olivi will serve as reporter.
