The event is expected to feature a highly anticipated welterweight clash between former champion Tyron Woodley and ex-interim titleholder Colby Covington in the main event. Silva (6-1) looks to get back on track after a “Fight of the Night” defeat to Maryna Moroz at UFC Brasilia in March, the first fight of the Dana White’s Contender Series’ prospect since suffering a serious knee injury sustained in her victorious UFC debut against Gillian Robertson in 2018. Borella (12-8, 2 no-contests) scored both of her octagon victories against Brazilian opponents, submitting Kalindra Faria before winning a decision over Taila Santos, but then lost three in a row against Lauren Murphy, Montana De La Rosa and Cortney Casey.
