Moreno faced Brandon Royval instead.
A UFC Women's Flyweight Championship bout between current champion Valentina Shevchenko and Jennifer Maia co-headlined the event.
John Allan Arte and Roman Dolidze were originally scheduled to meet at this event in a light heavyweight bout. They were eventually rescheduled for UFC on ESPN: Hermansson vs. Holland in December.
Former UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler was expected to face Mike Perry at this event. However, Lawler pulled out of the fight in late October citing an undisclosed injury. He was replaced by Tim Means.
A welterweight bout between Orion Cosce and Nicolas Dalby was expected to take place at this event. However on November 12, Cosce pulled out due to undisclosed reasons and was replaced by Daniel Rodriguez.
