Diaz, 37, has not fought in the Octagon since June of 2021 at UFC 263 where he went down to defeat against Leon Edwards (20-3 MMA). It will be Diaz’s last fight under his current UFC contract.

The co-main event will feature Tony Ferguson (26-7 MMA) vs Li Jingliang (19-7 MMA) in a welterweight match-up.

Ferguson, 38, has made the move back to welterweight status and is hoping to put his 4 losses in a row behind him when he meets up with Jingliang tomorrow night. The ‘Leech’ has won 3 of his last 5 fights, his most recent victory was against Muslim Salikhov (18-3 MMA) this past July.
