The UFC’s upcoming, March 30th card in Philadelphia has its main event, as the promotion announced Justin Gaethje and Edson Barboza will fight in the headliner.

Gaethje (19-2) returned to the win column in August by knocking out James Vick. Prior to that the former WSOF lightweight champ had dropped consecutive fights to Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier.

Barboza (20-6) also ended a two-fight losing skid in his last bout, as he stopped Dan Hooker in December. Barboza was coming off losses to Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kevin Lee.
