In the main event, Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez will collide in a key featherweight battle. Two-time title challenger Ortega is looking to rebound after suffering a unanimous decision loss to UFC champion Alexander Volkanovski in one of 2021’s best fights. Rodriguez has won just two of his past four bouts since 2018 but told MMA Fighting this week that the UFC has promised him the next title shot against Volkanovski if he defeats Ortega.
