Main Event: Moicano vs Korean Zombie preview

Featherweight contender Renato Moicano comes into the bout on the back of a TKO loss to former champion Jose Aldo. Before the loss to Aldo, Moicano was on a two-fight winning streak, with victories over Cub Swanson and Calvin Kattar. Now, Moicano will look to bounce back from that last result and get closer to another title shot.

Moicano will go up against one of the most exciting and aggressive fighters of the 145-pound division, Chan Sung Jung, who also comes into the weekend's fight fresh off a knock out loss to Yair Rodriguez. Before that loss to Rodriguez, the Korean Zombie, had just one defeat in five since his move to the UFC. The loss was to Aldo, while the wins came against Dennis Bermudez, Dustin Porier, Mark Hominic and Leonard Garcia.

Both fighters will look to snap their losing streaks when they meet this weekend and going by the recent results, this could probably end in a stoppage.

Co-main event: Font vs Lineker preview

Font met Lineker at UFC 198 in May 2016 in Brazil. On that night, Lineker earned a decision win, handing Font his first loss in the promotion. Font is 4-2 since then and is on the back of a decision win over Sergio Pettis. The former CES Featherweight champion Font has won six of nine since switching to the Octagon with impressive wins against Matt Schnell, Douglas Silva de Andrade and Thomas Almeida.

Lineker, meanwhile, comes into the fight fresh from a split decision loss to Cody Sandhagen. However, Mao-de-Pedra was on a two fight winning streak before that defeat with wins over Brian Kellher and Marlon Vera. And the veteran has a good record in the UFC, losing only four of his fifteen fights.

With previous record in his favour, Lineker will have an advantage going into this bout, but on form he may be low on confidence against Font, who won his most recent fight.
