Taking the headline bout will be Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson. The two will meet in the finals of the first-ever UFC flyweight tournament. The winner will leave Canada as the UFC flyweight champion.
In the co-main event, middleweight contenders Michael Bisping and Brian Stann will collide in a bout sure to provide fireworks.
Bisping and Stann have been seeking a match with each other for several years now, and the two called each other out recently. This fight could also go a long ways in determining the next challenger to UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
Benavidez has been sitting on the sidelines due to a scoring error in the first Johnson-Ian McCall match. The two were forced to fight again, with “Mighty Mouse” coming out on top.
The two fights are added to an announced Rory MacDonald-BJ Penn bout that will see “The Prodigy” return from retirement to face the rising prospect from Canada.
