Amir Albazi (-480) vs Alessandro Costa (+360)

Flyweight

Nicknamed The Prince, Albazi is touted as the UFC’s only Iraqi. He will face a last-minute opponent, as his original opponent was Brandon Royval, but he got injured. Brazilian Alessandro Costa, then, will step into the octagon to try to defeat the Iraqi, a rising star in the flyweight division.
