The contest featured the defending women’s strawweight champion up against the former titleholder, going head to head during a five-round war early March. The championship was proclaimed as one of the greatest fights in MMA history.

UFC Unleashed continues the show at 9pm, with top-ranked lightweight contender Tony Ferguson (26-3) in his previous bout against Donald Cerrone (36-14). The program also includes Joseph Benavidez face off Jussier Formiga and Joaquim Silva up against Jared Gordon.

In conclusion, the second portion of UFC Main Event features the current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0) in his previous outing when he faced Dustin Poirier (25-6) at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi.
