In the night’s co-main event slot, UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko puts her title on the line against the challenger, Lauren Murphy.
Heavyweights Curtis Blaydes and Jairzinho Rozenstruik will exchange leather, and former UFC women’s strawweight champion Jessica Andrade will look to dismantle Cynthia Calvillo to open up the pay-per-view on ESPN+.
