No. 1 ranked Marlon Moraes battles No. 4 ranked Cory Sandhagen with a potential title shot on the line in the bantamweight division. The co-main event will see dynamic featherweights compete, trying to climb higher in the rankings, as Edson Barboza takes on Makwan Amirkhani.

Due to a positive COVID-19 test, UFC removed Roman Kopylov from his middleweight bout in UFC Fight Island 5 with Tom Breese. The league replaced Kopylov with undefeated Canadian newcomer KB Bhullar, who finished an impressive six of his eight UFC wins in the first round.

This matchup is intriguing because The Bengal originally was scheduled to take part in Dana White’s Contender Series, but opted to go directly to the UFC because he felt ready.

This feeling was despite being away from the Fighting Game for several years!

The lesser-known names in the UFC, especially The Fill-Ins, are often easy prey because, and this is not an exaggeration, they are just fighting for the cost Air-Fare and Hotel Accommodations.

Because of sentimental reasons, I sure hope KB does well, which leads to more significant and more prominent accomplishments for him.
