Eye vs. Calvillo - Flyweight main event

Former flyweight title challenger Jessica Eye looks for back-to-back wins as she welcomes Cynthia Calvillo to the 125-pound division.

Eye (15-7) rebounded from her first stoppage loss in the Octagon to defeat Viviane Araujo by unanimous decision at UFC 245 in December. The 33-year-old has won four of her last five fights, with all of those victories going to the judges' scorecards.

Calvillo (8-1-1) moves up to the flyweight division for the first time since her professional MMA debut in August 2016. The 33-year-old is coming off a draw against Marina Rodriguez at UFC D.C. in December that pushed her undefeated streak to three straight.

The American Kickboxing Academy product hasn't recorded a stoppage victory since November 2018.

Roberson vs. Vettori - Middleweight co-main event

We've got a grudge match in the evening's co-feature as middleweight Karl Roberson battles Marvin Vettori. These two were scheduled to fight at UFC Fight Night on May 13 before an illness pulled Roberson off the card. Vettori was not happy about the fight being off and confronted Roberson at the fighter hotel.

Roberson (9-2) hasn't competed since a third-round submission victory over Roman Kopylov at UFC Moscow in November. "Baby K" is looking to post his first three-fight win streak since November 2017.

The former Glory kickboxer is 4-2 in the Octagon and finished two of his opponents during that span.

Vettori (14-3-1) last fought in October, when he picked up a unanimous decision victory over Andrew Sanchez at UFC Tampa. The 26-year-old also heads into the matchup off back-to-back victories.

Fili vs. Jourdain - Featherweight main card bout

Team Alpha Male standout Andre Fili looks to avoid two losing two in a row for the first time in his career as he faces off against Canadian Charles Jourdain.

Fili (20-7) had a two-fight win streak snapped in his last bout, a unanimous decision loss to Sodiq Yusuff at UFC 246 in January. The 29-year-old has fought the likes of Max Holloway, Yair Rodriguez, and Calvin Kattar during his 14-fight tenure in the UFC.

Jourdain (10-2) is coming off his first UFC victory, a knockout of Doo Ho Choi at UFC Busan in November. The 24-year-old won five of his last six fights, his lone setback coming at lightweight against Desmond Green in his promotional debut at UFC Rochester in May 2019.

"Air" has finished 10 of his 12 career opponents, with six of those victories coming by knockout.
