Justin Scoggins was expected to face Ben Nguyen at the event. However, Scoggins pulled out of the fight in the week leading up to the event citing injury. As a result, Nguyen was pulled from the card entirely.
Abel Trujillo was expected to face Ross Pearson at the event. However, Trujillo was removed from the card on March 12 due to alleged visa issues which restricted his entry to Australia.
