The event was headlined by a UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship bout between current champion Amanda Nunes and former champion Ronda Rousey. A UFC Bantamweight Championship bout between then champion Dominick Cruz and Cody Garbrandt co-headlined the event. A potential heavyweight title eliminator bout between former UFC Heavyweight Champions Fabrício Werdum and Cain Velasquez was expected to take place on the card. The pairing met previously in June 2015 at UFC 188, with then interim champion Werdum unifying the title, as he won the fight via submission in the third round. However the Nevada State Athletic Commission, after analyzing physical examinations and interviews, deemed Velasquez unfit to compete and pulled him from the event on December 24. The bout was eventually scrapped. Another potential title eliminator included a bantamweight bout between former champion T.J. Dillashaw and John Lineker. Matt Brown was expected to face former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Tarec Saffiedine at the event.  However, Brown was pulled from the fight on November 11 in favor of a matchup with former UFC Lightweight Championship challenger Donald Cerrone three weeks earlier at UFC 206.  Saffiedine instead faced Dong Hyun Kim.
