A middleweight showdown between Yoel Romero (7-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Brad Tavares (12-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) was chosen as the final main-card attraction.
This card is quite the well-rounded one, as we will see huge heavyweights slug it out (Travis Browne vs. Fabricio Werdum), a woman’s bantamweight scrap (Liz Carmouche vs. Miesha Tate), and a lightweight barnburner (Edson Barboza vs. Donald Cerrone). Browne and Werdum will be the headliners of the Orlando Amway Center card.
Before the main card fights get underway, there will be three fights airing live on UFC Fight Pass (starting at 3:30pm Eastern), and an additional six fight preliminary card to be aired on FOX Sports 1 at 5pm Eastern.
