UFC Fight Island is set to host the second Night event of its second stint at Yas Islands in Abu Dhabi.

UFC Fight Island 5 will feature a bantamweight bout between former title challenger Marlon Moraes and top contender Cory Sandhagen.

Marlon Moraes is coming off of a unanimous decision win over former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo at UFC 245 last December, whereas Cory Sandhagen is coming off of a first-round submission loss to Aljamain Sterling at UFC 250 in June earlier this year.

In the co-main event, fans will be treated to a mouth-watering matchup between Makwan Amirkhani and Edson Barboza. It’s a must-win fight for Barboza who is coming off of a three-fight losing streak to Dan Ige, Paul Felder and Justin Gaethje.
