A UFC women’s strawweight Championship bout between the current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Karolina Kowalkiewicz will compete for the third title on the card.
The other three fights on the main card are former UFC Middleweight champion Chris Weidman and 2000 Olympic silver medalist and former world champion in freestyle wrestling Yoel Romero, a welterweight former lightweight title challenger Donald Cerrone and The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen middleweight winner Kelvin Gastelum and a women’s bantamweight bout between former Strikeforce and UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate and Raquel Pennington.
Headlining the Fox Sports 1 preliminary card will be a featherweight contest between former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and Jeremy Stephens whilst the preliminary card will be opened by a middleweight fight between Rafael Natal and Tim Boetsch.
