Undercard competitor Saiful Merican stepped on the scale at 129.8 pounds and could not make the flyweight limit for his bout against Gianni Subba (123.6), which will now be contested at a catch-weight.

Immediately prior, the free, two-bout preliminary card streams on Sherdog.com at 6 a.m. ET/3 a.m. PT.

Subtitled ”Return of Warriors,” the event will also see unbeaten Filipino talent Rey Docyogen (124.3) lock horns with former Shooto 123-pound champion Shinichi “BJ” Kojima (124.5) in a flyweight co-headliner. Additionally, the main draw will feature a pair of lightweight contests pitting Vuyisile Colossa (153.1) against Lowen Tynanes (153.3) and Leo Krishna (154.2) against Peter Davis (154.7), as well as a welterweight showdown featuring Zuli Silawanto (169.6) and Adam Shahir Kayoom (168.5).
