Late Change

The card was originally set to feature dual champion Amanda Nunes, as she was scheduled to defend her title against Julianna Pena. The women's champion had to pull out of the co-main event due to COVID issues involving her family. Pena seemed pretty upset about the situation and eager to get answers on when she will get her shot. The two fighters had a friendly exchange on Twitter following the cancelation.
