The event is headlined by a Catchweight bout between former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and Japanese Olympic gold medalist Satoshi Ishii.

Prior to that, “Rampage” had a successful three-fight stint with Bellator MMA , going 3-0 with two knockouts against Joey Beltran Christian M’Pumbu and unanimous decision won over Muhammed Lawal. After facing Maldonado inside the UFC Octagon, a contract settlement brought him back to Bellator MMA , where he now faces Ishii.
