One week after UFC 264: Poirier vs. McGregor 3 is UFC Vegas 31 on July 17th. Unfortunately, we aren’t getting Max Holloway vs. Yair Rodriguez as was the plan for the night’s main event. Instead, lightweight contender Islam Makhachev gets bumped up to headliner status against Thiago Moises. This will be Makhachev’s first scheduled five-rounder in his UFC career.

The co-main event is the return of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate from a five-year retirement, as she faces the soon-to-be retiring Marion Reneau. For perspective on how long Tate has been away from the sport, Conor McGregor won the UFC lightweight title against Eddie Alvarez a couple of hours after Tate’s loss to Raquel Pennington at UFC 205.

Here’s what’s on tap for UFC Vegas 31, but please note that the bout order is not set beyond the main and co-main event:

Islam Makhachev vs. Thiago Moises

Miesha Tate vs. Marion Reneau

Jeremy Stephens vs. Mateusz Gamrot

Daniel Rodriguez vs. Abubakar Nurmagomedov

Phil Hawes vs. Deron Winn

Cameron Else vs. Aaron Phillips

Miles Johns vs. Anderson dos Santos

Amanda Lemos vs. Montserrat Ruiz

Khalid Taha vs. Sergey Morozov

Billy Quarantillo vs. Gabriel Benitez

Francisco Figueiredo vs. Malcolm Gordon

Don Madge vs. Guram Kutateladze

Rodolfo Vieira vs. Dustin Stoltzfus

Rodrigo Nascimento vs. Alan Baudot
