The main card features a heavyweight contest of great proportions, as No. 7-ranked former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski takes on the up-and-coming No. 10 competitor Francis Ngannou. Ngannou is currently riding a nine-fight win streak as he continues to impress UFC fans with four straight finishes inside the Octagon.

In the co-main event, hometown hero and fan-favorite Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone meets Jorge Masvidal in a welterweight scrap sure to bring the house down. Cerrone looks to propel himself into title contention with an emphatic statement win in Denver, while Masvidal looks for what would be the biggest win of his career against ‘Cowboy’.
