Main event

In the main event, Jailton Almeida (18-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) will look to continue his surge in the heavyweight division when he takes on Jairzinho Rozenstruik (13-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC). The 31-year-old Almeida, from Brazil, has all 18 of his career wins by stoppage, including 11 by submission. Rozenstruik got back in the win column this past December after back-to-back losses when he stopped Chris Daukaus with a 23-second knockout.

Co-main event

The co-feature in North Carolina is a key light heavyweight bout that had been targeted for a different headliner. Another card’s loss is Charlotte’s gain with former title challengers Anthony Smith (36-17 MMA, 11-7 UFC) and Johnny Walker (20-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC). Smith lost his title shot against Jon Jones in March 2019. He’s gone 4-3 since then and will be looking to rebound from a TKO loss to Magomed Ankalaev in July 2022. Walker has back-to-back first-round finishes over Ion Cutelaba and Paul Craig after a rough stretch that saw him drop four of five fights.


UFC debut: Tainara Lisboa

Tainara Lisboa (5-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is set for her UFC debut when she takes on longtime UFC women’s bantamweight Jessica-Rose Clark (11-8 MMA, 4-4 UFC) to open up the card. Lisboa, a 32-year-old from Brazil, has all five of her pro wins by stoppage, including three straight. The bout against Clark will be Lisboa’s first outside her home country.
