Pena (2-0-0) is going to be making his UFC debut in this fight and does so with an undefeated streak that has lasted almost two years. Pena also made it to the quarterfinals of the UFC Ultimate Fighter 27, but a foot injury caused the competitor to be pulled from the reality show.

Smullen (3-0-1) is also going to be making his UFC debut in this fight, but is coming off of a majority draw against Rhys McKee at BAMMA 30 in July of 2017.
