In the main event, welterweight champion Kamaru Usman defends his title in a rematch with Jorge Masvidal. In the co-headliner, women’s flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko aims for her fifth consecutive title defense when she takes on Jessica Andrade. A third title fight also sees Zhang Weili defend her strawweight crown against ex-champ Rose Namajunas.
