Background[edit]

Alessio Di Chirico was expected to face Tom Breese at the event. However, Di Chirico pulled out of the fight in early January citing an undisclosed injury and subsequent surgery.[5] On January 8, it was reported that The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil middleweight winner Cezar Ferreira will be his replacement. Ferreira and Breese were expected to meet at UFC Fight Night: Magny vs. Ponzinibbio in November 2018, but Breese pulled out due to injury.[6]
