The co-main event features a vacant featherweight title fight pitting UFC veteran Sean Soriano against former WSOF fighter Bruce Boyington.
Soriano (11-5) has won back-to-back fights and has gone 3-2 since leaving the UFC in 2015. The 28-year-old hasn’t gone the distance in a fight since Sept. 2014. Boyington (15-11) rebounded from a three-fight skid when he defeated Taylor Trahan at NEF 32 in February. The 39-year-old looks for back-to-back wins for the first time since June 2016.
