Background[edit]

The event will mark the promotion's first visit to Rochester, New York.[1]

A welterweight bout between former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos and former interim lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee has been slated to serve as the event headliner.[4]

Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos was briefly linked to a welterweight matchup with Neil Magny at the event. However, on March 28, 2019 dos Santos announced that he had not been contacted by the UFC about the match.[5] Magny is now expected to face Vicente Luque instead.[6]
