A lightweight rematch between former two-time Bellator Lightweight Champion and former UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier was the main event of the card. Their first bout at UFC 211 in May 2017 was ruled a no contest after Alvarez hit a downed Poirier with illegal knees in the second round.
A light heavyweight bout between Gadzhimurad Antigulov and Ion Cuțelaba was previously scheduled for UFC 217. However, Antigulov pulled out of the fight due to injury and the bout was scrapped. The matchup eventually happened at this event.
