The event is headlined by UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson looking to make history as he defends the championship for the tenth time, this time against Wilson Reis.

In the co-main event, it will be a battle between high-ranked womens' strawweights as Rose Namajunas takes on Michelle Waterson, with a potential title shot waiting in the wings for the winner.
