In the main event, former heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez takes on Francis Ngannou, in what is Cain’s first fight since UFC 200 in July 2016. He headlined the first UFC on FOX show in 2011, and now he is doing it again of ESPN.
Looks like co-main event it’s going to be a lightweight bout between James Vick and Paul Felder. There’s also a key bantamweight scrap featuring Aljamain Sterling against Jimmie Rivera. A few fights from the cancelled UFC 233 card were shifted to this event, including Kron Gracie’s UFC debut against Alex Caceres.
This is not the official bout order but fight card looking solid ahead of UFC on ESPN 1.
