Garbrandt is part of the UFC’s youth generation. The undefeated 24-year-old is coming off a unanimous decision win of Henry Briones at UFC 189.

But Lineker is no tomato can. He’s armed with a 3-fight win streak with wins over Ian McCall and Francisco Rivera.

Then there are the female bantamweights.

Murphy is a former Invicta FC bantamweight champ who is looking for her first win in the octagon. Moras, 27, is the pride of Sechell, British Columbia and is trying to bounce back from a loss to Jessica Andrade in July.
