Set for July 25 from the United Center in Chicago, the main event features T.J. Dillashaw defending his bantamweight title against Renan Barao.

“Gomi is the ONE fighter I have ever gone up to as a fan,” Lauzon posted on Instagram, along with a picture that read work until your idols become your rivals. “Introduced myself knowing he didn’t speak English.”
