The main event features a welterweight bout between former UFC lightweight championship challenger Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros.
Cerrone who won four straight in 2016 had a rough year in 2017. A TKO loss to Jorge Masvidal at UFC on Fox 23 was followed by a unanimous decision loss to Robbie Lawler at UFC 214. In his most recent bout, ‘Cowboy’ once again suffered a TKO loss, this time to Darren Till at UFC Fight Night 118.
Following a decision loss to Francisco Trinaldo, Medeiros has won three straight. A submission win over Sean Spencer at UFC 203 was followed by back-to-back TKO wins over Erick Silva at UFC 212 and Alex Oliveira at UFC 218.
The co-main event features a heavyweight contest between Derrick Lewis and Marcin Tybura.
Following six-wins on the bounce including a ‘performance of the Night’ TKO win over Gabriel Gonzaga and a ‘Fight of the Night’ KO win over Travis Browne, Lewis had his winning streak snapped last time out, suffering a fourth-round TKO loss to Mark Hunt at UFC Fight Night 110.
After winning three in a row himself which included a ‘Performance of the Night’ head kick KO win over Viktor Pešta at UFC Fight Night 92, Tybura is also coming off a loss, against Fabricio Werdum at UFC Fight Night 121 via unanimous decision.
