McGregor, who has not fought since losing a battle with current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018. The ex-featherweight and lightweight titleholder scraps with Cerrone in a welterweight contest. Cerrone is coming off two TKO losses in the lightweight division.

In the co-main event, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Holly Holm faces ex-title challenger Raquel Pennington in a rematch. The first time these two met, Holm won the contest via split decision. Holm is 2-5 in her past seven fights. She opened her career on a 10-0 run. Holm’s current record is 12-5. Pennington had a four-fight winning streak come to an end in 2018 when she was stopped via TKO by Amanda Nunes in a women’s bantamweight title fight in May of that year. She lost her next bout as well, but Pennington is coming off a split decision win over Irene Aldana in July.

The focus of the prelim card falls upon the women’s flyweight matchup between ex-title title challenger Roxanne Modafferi and rising star Maycee Barber. Barber, who is 21, hopes to become the youngest champion in UFC history. Before she can achieve that goal, she needs to get by Modafferi, who has challenged for titles in multiple organizations.
