The co-main event features a featherweight title bout between Andres Quintana and veteran Bruno Cannetti. Quintana (18-2), an Ultimate Fighter veteran, has won eight consecutive bouts, all under the Combate Americas banner. He most recently won three bouts in one night at Combate 29 in December of 2018, which included a first round TKO of Cannetti.

Prior to that, Cannetti was riding a four-fight winning streak, including a first round TKO against event headliner Ruquet in the first round of the one-night tournament this past December.
