Background

A welterweight bout between former two-division champion Conor McGregor and former UFC Lightweight Championship challenger Donald Cerrone is expected to serve as the event headliner.[3]

A women’s bantamweight rematch between former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm and former title challenger Raquel Pennington was initially scheduled to take place at UFC 243.[4] The pairing previously met in February 2015 at UFC 184, with Holm winning the encounter via split decision.[5] However, it was revealed on September 27, 2019 that Holm withdrew from the bout due to a hamstring injury and the bout was cancelled.[6] The bout has been rescheduled and is now expected to take place at this event.[7]
