Conor McGregor was long rumored to fight Michael Chandler at this event. McGregor and Chandler were the rival coaches in The Ultimate Fighter Season 31.

Leon Edwards revealed in July that he was looking to fight Colby Covington in the last quarter on the year. Dana White announced on September 20 that Edwards vs Covington fight will headline this event.

Additionally, the co-main event was also revealed to be a rematch between Alexander Pantoja and Brandan Royval with Pantoja’s flyweight title on the line. Pantoja defeated Royval in August 2021 in their first encounter.
