Background

A bantamweight bout between former two-time UFC Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw and Cory Sandhagen was expected to serve as the main event. It would be Dillashaw's first fight since his two-year suspension due to testing positive for recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO), which resulted in his title vacancy. However, Dillashaw announced on April 27 that he had to pull out of the fight due to a cut he received from a headbutt in training. Sandhagen is expected to be removed from the card as well, with the pairing remaining intact and rescheduled at a future event. A women's flyweight bout between former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion Michelle Waterson and Marina Rodriguez is now expected to serve as the new main event. The pairing usually fights at strawweight, but due to the short notice of the booking, they will meet at a weight class above.

A women's bantamweight bout between former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm and The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate bantamweight winner Julianna Peña was scheduled for the event. However, Holm was forced to withdraw from the bout citing hydronephrosis. In turn, Peña was also removed from the card in favor of a title bout against current champion Amanda Nunes (also the UFC Women's Featherweight Champion) at UFC 265.

A heavyweight bout between Ben Rothwell and Philipe Lins was expected to take place at UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Muhammad, but it was canceled due to an injury to Rothwell. The pairing was then rescheduled for this event. While Rothwell made weight without issue, Lins never showed up to the weigh-ins and withdrew from the bout due to an illness.

A welterweight bout between Neil Magny and Geoff Neal was originally scheduled to take place at UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Rakić, but Neal withdrew from the event due to a severe case of pneumonia that evolved to sepsis. The pairing is now exected to take place at this event.

Former UFC Women's Flyweight Championship challenger Roxanne Modafferi was expected to face Taila Santos in a women's flyweight bout. However, Modafferi was forced to pull out due to a meniscus tear a month before the event and the bout was scrapped.

Jimmy Flick was expected to face Francisco Figueiredo in a flyweight bout at this event. However on April 10, Flick announced his retirement from mixed martial arts. Figueiredo was then expected to face JP Buys. Buys eventually got injured and also had to pull out. He was replaced by Malcolm Gordon and the new pairing is expected to take place at UFC Fight Night 192 instead.

Nikolas Motta and Damir Hadžović were expected to meet in a lightweight bout. However, Motta pulled out in mid-April due to an injury In turn, Hadžović was rescheduled and is expected to face Yancy Medeiros two weeks later at UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Garbrandt.

Former UFC Lightweight Championship challenger and The Ultimate Fighter 1 middleweight winner Diego Sanchez was expected to face fellow lightweight title challenger Donald Cerrone in a welterweight bout. However, Sanchez was removed from the fight on April 28 after being released by the UFC. He was replaced by Alex Morono.

At the weigh-ins, Carlos Diego Ferreira and Ryan Benoit missed weight for their respective bouts. Ferreira weighed in at 160.5 pounds, four and a half pounds over the lightweight non-title fight limit. His bout is expected to proceed at catchweight and he will be fined 30% of his purse, which will go to his opponent Gregor Gillespie. Benoit weighed in at 129 pounds, three pounds over the flyweight non-title fight limit. His bout with Zarrukh Adashev was cancelled by the Nevada State Athletic Commission due to health concerns.
