Orellano (3-2-0) enters the bout on a two fight losing streak, suffering defeats to the duo of Juan Puerta and Claudio Ledesma.

Orellano is also competing for a title for the first time in his professional MMA career, which has lasted almost five years now.

Two other titles are going to be defended on the card as Raush Manfio defends the lightweight gold against Lee Lilly and Rami Hamed faces Jose Caceres for the vacant welterweight strap.
