Set for October 16 from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut, the card features a headline bout between Marcos Galvao and Eduardo Dantas for the bantamweight belt.

Halsey (9-0) was stripped of the 185-pound title after missing weight ahead of a planned title defense vs. Kendall Grove. He went on to win the bout, and will now attempt to reclaim his title.

Carvalho is 11-1 and has won his last 11 fights since dropping his pro debut.
