Dan Henderson is still fighting, and because Daniel Cormier/Ryan Bader had to be uprooted, he's in a main event versus Tim Boetsch. The co-main features heavyweights Matt Mitrione and Ben Rothwell in a bout with immediate top 10 implications. Dustin Poirier's next fight in his return to lightweight will be against Yancy Medeiros in what should be the frontrunner for FOTN. Rounding out the main card are featherweights Thiago Tavares and Brian Ortega, famous last-minute bantamweight title challenger Joe Soto versus Anthony Birchack, and fellow bantamweights Alex Caceres and Francisco Rivera.
