The UFC returns to Las Vegas for a ranked heavyweight showdown between heavy hitters Tai Tuivasa and Marcin Tybura. Both fighters are looking to get back in the win column and climb their way up the rankings as we wait for the heavyweight title picture to figure itself out.

Tuivasa is on the second three-fight losing streak of his career after winning five straight by knockout. Tuivasa's last win was at UFC 271 against Derrick Lewis; since then, he's been finished by former interim champion Ciryl Gane, Sergei Pavlovich and most recently former Bellator champion Alexander Volkov at UFC 293. Tybura most recently lost to current interim champion Tom Aspinall at UFC London after winning two straight.

The co-main event will feature The Ultimate Fighter 29 winner Bryan Battle, who will face Ange Loosa in a welterweight bout. Battle is on a two-fight win streak after finishing AJ Fletcher at UFC Vegas 79. Loosa has also won two straight, most recently beating Rhys McKee at UFC Paris.

The main card is rounded out by veteran light heavyweight Ovince Saint Preux, who will be making his 27th walk to the octagon, and Kennedy Nzechukwu. Nzechukwu is coming off a loss after winning three straight. Pannie Kianzad and Macy Chiasson will face each other again after Chiasson bested Kianzad to become The Ultimate Fighter 28 winner. Veteran middleweights Gerald Meerschaert and Bryan Barberena will also feature.

The prelims are headlined by lightweights Natan Levy and Mike Davis. Levy has won two straight since dropping his debut and Davis has won three straight since suffering the same result. Both fighters haven't fought since 2022.

Ranked women's bantamweights Josiane Nunes and Chelsea Chandler face off on the prelims. Nunes is on a nine-fight win streak and is undefeated with the organization. Chandler is 1-1 since coming over from Invicta Fighting Championships and is moving back down to bantamweight.
