The UFC stays on the road after UFC 298 when they head South from Anaheim, CA to Mexico City, Mexico for a fight night card.

The card, slated for Feb. 24, will be headlined by a big rematch. Former UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno will fight Brandon Royval. Former UFC interim champion Yair Rodriguez faces Brian Ortega in the co-main event in another rematch.

Moreno and Royval fought once before on Nov. 21, 2020. That fight ended in a first round knockout for Moreno with just one second remaining in the round. He'll look to see if lightning can strike twice in Mexico City.

Ortega is returning to the Octagon for the first time since 2022, when he lost to Rodgriguez for the first time. He's looking to rebound from that loss for a get back in the win column with retribution.

Also on the card is 19 year old Raul Rosas Jr. fighting internationally for the first time in his short UFC career.
