Brendon Marotte’s featherweight clash with Mohammad Yahya and Josefine Knutsson’s bout with Julia Polastri have been removed due to Marotte and Knutsson’s withdrawals. Polastri will now take on Stephanie Luciano in place of the injured Shauna Bannon.

Visa issues sidelined Joel Alvarez from his lightweight bout with Ludovit Klein, with AJ Cunningham stepping in. Additionally, Benardo Sopai steps in to face Vinicius Oliveira after Yanis Ghemmouri’s withdrawal.
