Earlier this week, the UFC announced that the initially scheduled co-main event bout between Mirko Cro Cop and Anthony Hamilton had been scratched due to Cro Cop facing a potential suspension for USADA due to a positive drug test result and Hamilton will be moved to another card.

Along with the bout between Kim and Masvidal being elevated to the co-main event, the UFC also announced on Thursday that the welterweight bout between Hyun Gyu Lim and Dominique Steele has been elevated to the main card.
