Background

After a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19 pandemic, the promotion announced the return of 'International Fight Week', scheduled to take place in Las Vegas during the days leading up to, and surrounding the event.

A UFC Light Heavyweight Championship bout between current champion Jan Błachowicz (also former KSW Light Heavyweight Champion) and former title challenger Glover Teixeira was scheduled take place at the event. However, the bout was postponed in late June and moved to UFC 267.

A UFC Featherweight Championship bout between current champion Alexander Volkanovski and former title challenger Brian Ortega is expected to headline the event. The pairing was previously scheduled to take place at UFC 260, but it was cancelled a week before taking place as Volkanovski tested positive for COVID-19. The pairing was then postponed a few months as both fighters were named head coaches for The Return of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Volkanovski vs. Team Ortega.

A UFC Women's Flyweight Championship bout between current champion Valentina Shevchenko and former Invicta FC Bantamweight Champion Lauren Murphy is expected to serve as the co-headliner.

A middleweight bout between former UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler and former WEC and Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz (also former welterweight title challenger) is expected to take place at this event, marking the second time a non-main event and non-title bout has been scheduled for five rounds. They met previously 17 years ago at UFC 47, with Diaz winning by knockout. The bout was originally expected to take place at welterweight but was moved up a weight class days before the event.

A heavyweight bout between Shamil Abdurakhimov and Chris Daukaus is expected to take place at the event. The pairing was initially scheduled to meet on July 24, 2021 at UFC on ESPN: Sandhagen vs. Dillashaw, but the matchup was removed from that card on July 19 due to COVID-19 protocols within Abdurakhimov's camp. The matchup remained intact and was rescheduled for the following week at UFC on ESPN: Hall vs. Strickland, but it was postponed again due to undisclosed reasons.

A women's flyweight bout between The Ultimate Fighter: Team Joanna vs. Team Cláudia strawweight winner Tatiana Suarez and former title challenger Roxanne Modafferi was scheduled for the event. However, Suarez pulled out due to a knee injury that will require surgery. She was replaced by Taila Santos. The Modafferi and Santos pairing was previously scheduled for UFC on ESPN: Rodriguez vs. Waterson, but Modafferi pulled out due to a meniscus tear a month before the event and the bout was scrapped.

A bantamweight bout between Timur Valiev and Ricky Simón was originally linked to this event. However, the bout was never officially announced by the promotion and Valiev was instead scheduled to face Daniel Santos at UFC Fight Night 195.

A women's flyweight bout between Manon Fiorot and Mayra Bueno Silva was expected to take place at the event. However, the bout was postponed to UFC Fight Night 195 due to COVID-19 protocols.

A middleweight bout between Karl Roberson and Nick Maximov was scheduled for this event. However, Roberson was forced to withdraw from the event due to medical issues and was replaced by promotional newcomer Cody Brundage.
