Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UFC has been hosting most of its events in Las Vegas at the UFC Apex facility, all of them behind closed doors. This will be the first time since UFC 248 in March 2020 that T-Mobile Arena will host an event, with a full capacity crowd attending it.
A lightweight trilogy between former interim UFC Lightweight Champion Dustin Poirier and former UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor will headline the event.The pairing has previously met twice before: their first fight was a featherweight bout that happened in September 2014 at UFC 178, where McGregor won by first-round technical knockout. They then ascended to lightweight for an eventual rematch in January 2021 at UFC 257, where Poirier prevailed via second-round knockout.
A middleweight bout between former KSW Welterweight Champion Dricus du Plessis and Trevin Giles was scheduled to take place at UFC on ESPN: Brunson vs. Holland, but du Plessis was pulled from the event due to visa issues that restricted his travel. The pairing has been rescheduled and is expected to take place at this event.
A welterweight bout between Sean Brady and former interim UFC Lightweight Championship challenger Kevin Lee was expected to take place at the event. However, Lee withdrew due to injury and the bout was removed from the event.
A bantamweight bout between Sean O’Malley and Louis Smolka was expected to take place at the event. However on June 29, Smolka withdrew due to an undisclosed injury. He was replaced by promotional newcomer Kris Moutinho.
