The full card for the UFC Vegas 92 event headlined by featherweights Edson Barboza and Lerone Murphy has now been confirmed.

The event takes place on May 18 at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, with Barboza facing Murphy in a five-round main event matchup. Barboza is currently the No. 12-ranked featherweight in the UFC rankings and coming off a unanimous decision win over Sodiq Yusuff last October. Murphy has not competed since winning a unanimous decision over Joshua Culibao in July.

The co-main event features a three-round flyweight scrap between The Ultimate Fighter 24 winner Tim Elliott undefeated prospect Tatsuro Taira. Elliott is currently the No. 9-ranked flyweight in the UFC and most recently competed in December when he submitted Su Mudaerji at UFC Vegas 83. Taira also competed that night, stopping Carlos Hernandez with punches.

Adrian Yanez also makes his return to the cage to face Vinicius Salvador in a bantamweight bout, unbeaten light heavyweight Oumar Sy makes his promotional debut against Rodolfo Bellator, and former Fight Night headliner Abus Magomedov returns against longtime veteran Warlley Alves in a middleweight affair.
