A welterweight bout between Sean Spencer and Luiz Dutra was official for this card but had to be cancelled due to an injury.
Myles Jury was scheduled to face Abel Trujillo at the event. However, Jury pulled out of the bout with an injury and was replaced by Francisco Trevino. Subsequently, Trevino's originally scheduled opponent on the card, Joe Ellenberger, was briefly linked to bouts with newcomers Johnny Case and Bryan Barberena. However, Case and Barberena were removed just days after being announced as well and were eventually replaced by another newcomer James Moontasri. Then on June 9, Trevino pulled out of the bout and Trujillo was removed from the card entirely.
Ray Borg was scheduled to face Ryan Benoit at the event. However, on June 18 it was announced that Benoit had to pull out of the fight due to injury and was replaced by promotional newcomer Shane Howell.
Co-main event fighter Kelvin Gastelum initially weighed in over the 171 pound welterweight limit at 173 pounds. His subsequent efforts to make weight over the next two hours failed, hence he was forced to surrender 20 percent of his purse to opponent Nico Musoke.
