In the main event, it will be former light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira (33-8 MMA) vs. Jamahal Hill (11-1 MMA) battling it out for the vacant title.
Teixeira, 43, is coming off a loss to Jiri Prochazka (29-3 MMA) this past June, and looking to get back in the win column.
Hill, 31, is coming into the Octagon sporting 3 wins in his last 3 fights, most recently defeating Thiago Santos (22-11 MMA) by TKO in August of last year.
In the co-main event, flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo (21-2-1 MMA) and former champ and current interim titleholder Brandon Moreno (20-6-2 MMA) will meet for the fourth time in a rematch with the title at stake.
Figueiredo, 35, last fought and defeated ‘The Assassin Baby’ by unanimous decision in January of 2022.
