In the main event former WSOF bantamweight champion and UFC bantamweight title challenger Marlon Moraes squares off against Cory Sandhagen. The bout is scheduled for five rounds at bantamweight.

Marlon Moraes (23-6-1) is coming off the win by split decision against Jose Aldo scored at UFC 245 last December. In June 2019 he went up against Henry Cejudo in the contest with then vacant bantamweight title on the line, but was stopped in Round 3.

Cory Sandhagen (12-2) lost his previous bout this past June at UFC 250 via first-round submission against Aljamain Sterling. The defeat snapped his seven-win streak, including victories over Raphael Assuncao, John Linker, among others.

The co-main event is a welterweight matchup between Edson Barboza (20-9) and Makwan Amirkhani (16-4). The full UFC Fight Island 5 card can be found below.
