Brunson has fought some of the best of the best during his time inside the Octagon including former champions Anderson Silva, Robert Whittaker and Lyoto Machida, along with current UFC middleweight titleholder Israel Adesanya.

The 22-year-old Shahbazyan is a perfect 11-0 in his career including knockouts over Brad Tavares and Charles Byrd. He also trained with Ronda Rousey, the former UFC champion and Olympic medalist.

In the co-main event, Joanne Calderwood and Jennifer Maia square off in a key flyweight bout. Calderwood is 3-1 in her last four while Maia, a former Invicta FC champion, is 2-1 including a pair of decisions over Roxanne Modafferi and Alexis Davis.
