Description
A light heavyweight bout between former UFC Light Heavyweight Championship challengers Thiago Santos and Glover Teixeira was originally scheduled to serve as the event headliner. However, it was announced on September 3 that Teixeira tested positive for COVID-19 and the bout was rescheduled for October 3 at UFC on ESPN: Holm vs. Aldana.

A women's strawweight bout between former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion Michelle Waterson and former Invicta FC Strawweight Champion Angela Hill was initially scheduled to take place three weeks earlier at UFC on ESPN: Munhoz vs. Edgar. However, due to undisclosed personal reasons for Waterson, the bout was moved to this event. Subsequently, the pairing was announced as the new main event after the postponement of Santos/Teixeira.

A lightweight bout between Roosevelt Roberts and Matt Frevola was previously scheduled to take place at another event earlier in the year. However, that event was cancelled in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pairing was rescheduled for this event.

A light heavyweight bout between Ed Herman and Gerald Meerschaert was previously scheduled for August 1 at UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Shahbazyan. However, on the day of the event it was announced that the bout had been scrapped from the card after Meerschaert tested positive for COVID-19. The pairing was left intact and was rescheduled for this event. In turn, Meerschaert once again pulled out of the bout and was replaced by John Allan. Allan already had a bout booked against Roman Dolidze on November 21 at UFC 255, but was expected to compete in both of them. On September 3, Herman suffered another opponent change as Allan pulled out due to visa issues and was replaced by Mike Rodríguez.

A lightweight bout between Khama Worthy and Ottman Azaitar was previously scheduled to take place earlier this year at UFC 249. However, the event was cancelled in early April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pairing was then rescheduled for UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs. Sakai a week earlier. In turn, they were moved to this event due to undisclosed reasons.

A lightweight bout between Alan Patrick and Rodrigo Vargas was scheduled for this event. However, Vargas was removed from the card in early September for undisclosed reasons and replaced by Bobby Green.
