In the co-main event of the evening, the former Middleweight champion, Alex Pereira will make his much anticipated lightweight debut against the division’s ex-titlist, Jan Błachowicz.  Błachowicz has had a long history with Pereira’s training partner, Glover Teixeira. Teixeira choked out the Polish powerhouse at UFC 267 to win the gold at the age of 42. Now the ‘Poatan’ plans to do the same but in a more devastating manner. Błachowicz also has a perfect opportunity to avenge his loss against Teixeira but he will have a mountain to climb to.

Stephen ‘Wonder Boy’ Thompson will also be in action against Brazilian, Michel Pereira. Thompson is currently ranked no.7 and has won 3 out of his last five fights. The 40-year-old promises to deliver another show for his fans but he will have his task cut out. The former interim lightweight champ, Tony ‘El Cuccy’ Ferguson will fight Bobby Green.
