A heavyweight bout between former UFC Heavyweight Championship challenger Derrick Lewis and Aleksei Oleinik has been slated to serve as the event headliner.
A women's bantamweight bout between former UFC Women's Flyweight Champion Nicco Montaño and Julia Avila was originally scheduled for the event. However, due to Montano's coach John Wood testing positive for COVID-19, the bout was rescheduled for UFC Fight Night 177.
A women's bantamweight bout between Ketlen Vieira and former Invicta FC Bantamweight Champion and UFC Women's Featherweight Championship challenger Yana Kunitskaya was originally scheduled for a week earlier at UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Shahbazyan.

Subsequently, Vieira was removed from the card on July 30 due to visa issues and was replaced by returning veteran and the current Invicta FC Bantamweight Champion Julija Stoliarenko.
