Co-Main Event: Vacant UFC Women's Flyweight Championship
The co-main event will feature a bout for the vacant UFC Women's Flyweight Championship between former UFC Women's Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and former UFC Women's Batamweight Championship challenger Valentina Shevchenko. The Flyweight championship was first contested on December 1, 2017 in The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion Finale, where Nicco Montano defeated Roxanne Modafferi via unanimous decision to claim the inaugural title. After the championship win, Nicco was scheduled to face Valentina Shevchenko on September 8 , 2018 at UFC 228. However, due to the effects of her weight cutting, she was transported to the hospital and the bout was cancelled. As a result, the UFC stripped her of the title, and the Flyweight title became vacant.
