Initially, Figueiredo was set to collide against former Bantamweight champion, Cody Garbrandt, before an injury forced “No Love” out of the mix. Shevchenko was also set to defend her belt against Joanne Calderwood, but after Calderwood opted to take a fight against Maia in the interim — which she lost — the bout was given to the Brazilian bomber.
A few weeks out from fight night, the promotion has unveiled the first promo for the event. Expect much more promotional material to be released in the coming weeks for a show that also features Mike Perry taking on Tim Means and Shogun Rua facing off against Paul Craig for the second time.
